<strong>Jaycee Carroll – Real Madrid – Spain</strong> – Real Madrid has forced a Game 5, Saturday June 2, with a 76-66 victory today. After Jaycee went scoreless in a Game 3 loss he scored 8 in the victory today. He had 1 rebound. He played 16 minutes off the bench.
Jaycee has struggled in the semi-finals vs Caja Laboral. He has yet to hit double figures in the series. Amazing that has happened…considering that Jaycee scored 15 points in 5 minutes in game 2 of the quarter finals. Jaycee was averaging 11.5 ppg during the regular season, but when he has faced Caja Laboral, including one meeting in regular season and four meetings in playoffs, he has a 5 ppg average (the 2nd meeting between both teams in regular season was when Jaycee was in the hospital because of food poisoning).
Game 5 Saturday at home will be huge for Real Madrid with an ACB championship spot on the line. I’m sure home crowd will be rocking, but too bad the game can’t be played in the Spectrum.
