Opposed to Paris in the first round of the French Championship Playoffs, Tidjane Salaün and Cholet Basket created the feat by winning in the City of Lights after an absolutely controlled Game 1. Tidjane stood out with undoubtedly his best match this season, and a huge fourth quarter, where his composure was decisive for the Mauges club. A treat to watch!

This CRAZY fourth quarter. Tidjane Salaün had a decent first part of the match, with a great success and some fouls caused. Collectively, Cholet plays particularly fair: it’s clean defensively, it really bothers Paris who are not skillful enough to be on the heels of the Choletais. In the score, the Mauges club leads and it is deserved.

Very nice victory for the Choletais, in this first leg of the quarter-finals of the playoffs, which created a sensation at the Adidas Arena!

Saturday match for qualification for the semi-final, we’re counting on you to set La Meilleraie on fire!

But then, the end of the match, FORGIVENESS? While Paris began to climb back in the score thanks to a rediscovered skill from Sebastian Herrera and Tyson Ward, it was MR. Tidjane Salaün who calmed the entire Adidas Arena at the dawn of money time! Everywhere, he has been everywhere. At mid-distance, then at the finish of an alley oop at very high altitude… without forgetting the enormous 3-point shot sent from Montmartre, and not to mention the fouls caused to recover the ball. Very, very high level, it’s crazy fun to see!

What struck us in particular? Cold blood. Sent onto the field at a decisive moment of the match, Tidjane did not tremble in the face of his responsibilities, and left his mark with his complicated – cheeky – shots which went in and killed the hopes of the Ile-de-France residents. Finally ? 19 points, 8 rebounds, 3 assists, 8/13 shooting including 2/5 from 3-point range. Such a performance to start the Playoffs, and one month before the NBA Draft, is enough to send a real message to the competition… in France, but also across the Atlantic!
