The Take

Unicaja Malaga hosts Brose Bamberg in the last game of the first round of a double bill week in the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague on Wednesday. This will be the ninth time that both teams play ech other this century in European competition, with Unicaja in possession of a 5-3 advantage at this point. Currently, the Spanish team stands with a tied 1-1 record while Brose has started slow with a 0-2 and is in search of its first win of the season. Unicaja has its leader in Dragan Milosavljevic (11.0 ppg. and 5.0 apg.), followed by Dejan Musli (10.5 ppg. and 5.0 rpg.) and Ray McCallum (10.0 ppg.). For Brose, the main option right now is Leon Radosevic (15.5 ppg. and 6.0 rpg.), followed by vets Ricky Hickman (14.5 ppg. and 3.0 apg.) and Nikos Zisis (9.0 ppg.). Going into the game, Brose has better numbers in offense than the hosts (71.5 to 77.0 ppg.), but the guests also fare the second weakest offense in the league allowing for 90.5 points. Unicaja charges with more aggressiveness under the glass, but the fact that the Spanish team has the second worst percentage in three-pointers (23.7%) could be something to exploit for Brose. The current 7DAYS EuroCup champs play at home and will want to use that to get back on the winning track as soon as possible. Brose will also be looking for its first win as a 0-3 start could become a heavy burden in the weeks to come. Both teams have healthy rosters and contributions from each bench could be the key to emerge victorious from this game.
