Diamantino
It's still too early stage of the Regular Season in Proliga, but even now we can clearly see the differece between stronger teams and outsiders.

Bottom-ranked Benfica B (0-3) tried to put together a comeback for its first victory of the season, but they fell short in the 69-62 loss to top-ranked Maia Basket (4-0) in Lisboa on Sunday evening. But it was rather predictable considering how strong their opponent was. Benfica B trailed by 18 points after 3 quarters before a 20-9 run in the last quarter cut the deficit to 62-69 at the end of the game. Maia Basket made 16-of-16 free shots (100 percent !!!) during the game. Maia Basket forced 23 Benfica B turnovers. Center Paulo Diamantino (203-C-85) fired 24 points and 7 rebounds for the winners. The former international forward Nuno Marcal (205-75) chipped in 22 points and 6 rebounds. Andre Miguens (184-94) produced 14 points for lost side. Benfica B's coach Goran Nogic rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Maia Basket have a solid four-game winning streak. Maia Basket keeps a position of league leader, which they share with Oliveirense. Newly promoted Benfica B still closes the standings with three games lost. They share the position with Ginasio. Maia Basket is looking forward to face Electrico FC (#4) in Ponte de Sor in the next round. Benfica B will play at home against Ginasio (#10) in Figueira da Foz and hopes to get finally their first victory.
Bottom-ranked Ginasio (0-3) tried to put together a comeback for its first victory of the season, but they fell short in the 90-71 loss to fifth ranked Electrico FC (3-1) in Figueira da Foz. Worth to mention a great performance of guard Tiago Pinto (183-88) who helped to win the game recording 22 points and 7 rebounds. Mario Neves contributed with 19 points and 10 rebounds (on 8-of-9 shooting from the field) for the winners. Naturalized Cape Verdean forward Joaquim Soares (198-83) replied with 19 points and 7 rebounds for Ginasio. Ginasio's coach tested ten players seeing no chance for a win. Electrico FC moved-up to third place, which they share with Sangalhos. Ginasio at the other side still closes the standings with three games lost. They share the position with Benfica B. Electrico FC will play against league's leader Maia Basket at home in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Ginasio will play against Benfica B (#9) in Lisboa and looks forward to get finally their first victory.
Bottom-ranked Terceira (0-4) tried to put together a comeback for its first victory of the season, but they fell short in the 87-64 loss to seventh ranked Illiabum (2-2) in Ilhavo on Saturday evening. Worth to mention a great performance of Miguel Queiroz who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 20 points and 17 rebounds. Illiabum's coach Alexandre Pires felt very confident that he used entire bench which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. At the losing side Chano Rashiduddin responded with 20 points and 9 rebounds. Illiabum moved-up to sixth place. Loser Terceira still closes the standings with four games lost. Illiabum will meet at home higher ranked Sangalhos (#3) in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Terceira will play against Angrabasket (#8) and looks forward to get finally their first victory.
The game in supposed to be also worth to mention about. Top-ranked Oliveirense (4-0) played at the court of 6th ranked Leca (1-2). Oliveirense smashed Leca 69-47.

Oliveirense will have a break next round. Leca will play on the road against Guifoes (#5) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

In the last game of round 4 Angra was crushed by Sangalhos in a road game 69-50.
