With ten games remaining until the end of the regular season, Flamengo regained the lead in the NBB classification after a week with Minas' stumble. The teams have been fighting for the top of the table since the beginning of the season. But, with the Minas Gerais team's defeat to São Paulo, Franca also gained a position. Check out everything that happened in the last week of Novo Basquete Brasil.

To return to the top of the NBB classification, Flamengo won its two commitments of the week. Both, in fact, away from home. On Thursday, they beat Cerrado in a tough game. On Saturday, it was time to beat Brasília with a packed gym. This is because the BRB Nilson Nelson Arena received 11 thousand fans.


Minas, in turn, only played one match. Even playing at home, they were surpassed by São Paulo. The São Paulo tricolor has been on the rise this season and achieved a great triumph at the UniBH Arena. So, it was the third setback for the Minas Gerais team playing at home. With the defeat, they fell to third place.


Franca, who had fewer games than their direct rivals, played three matches in the last seven days. And he beat them all. The first two matches, against Pinheiros and Corinthians, were away from home. Closing the busy week, the current NBB champion overcame Pato Basquete without difficulty at Pedrocão.

But one of the main duels in national basketball last week was between Bauru and Vasco. The teams, which have similar campaigns, faced each other at the Pressure Cooker Gym. The Rio club then got the better of it and forced the São Paulo team's first defeat at home in the current season. Bauru, after all, had won 11 home games, but ended up being defeated by the Cruz-Maltino team. Thus, Vasco consolidated itself in fourth place in the NBB.


It is also worth highlighting São José's good performances. The team started the season very well, but dropped in production. Now, he played good games again and came away with two victories. With a century-old score, they beat União Corinthians, at home. The match was marked by the historic performance of point guard Diego Figueredo, who scored 41 points. As a result, it broke the current campaign's points record and reached the ninth highest score in the league's history.

Finally, the NBB week had the majestic classic. São Paulo and Corinthians faced each other at Morumbi. The tricolor had achieved great results against Minas, while the black and white team had been surpassed by Franca. However, the one who came out on top was Timão. In fact, it was Corinthians' first victory at their rival's home in the history of the NBB.
