After last year’s struggles in F.C.Barcelona, the Croatian center seems to be faring a little better –although never free of great inconsistency- now that he has a real distributing point guard –Pepe Sanchez- on his side. He’s much more of a finisher than a guy capable of creating his own opportunities, so he badly needed someone to set him up for good position facing the basket in order to take advantage of his excellent abilities finishing around the rim.

The Copa didn’t come in the best moment for him. He had a heart problem a couple of weeks ago and this was his initial comeback. Besides, with Bilbao displaying an excellent defense that never allowed the ball to flow for Barcelona, Kasun didn’t find many chances to produce, anyway failing a couple of continuations with his left hand. Of course, he didn’t miss his usual rendezvous with foul trouble, collecting a couple in the 4 minutes he spent on the court.
