The Take

Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv will try to bounce back from another home loss when it hosts Brose Bamberg on Wednesday at Menora Mivtachim Arena. Maccabi enters the game tied for sixth place with a 5-5 record, but is only 2-3 at home. The German champs sit in last place with a 2-8 record after losing five games in a row. Bamberg has yet to win on the road despite several close calls. Maccabi is let by a prolific perimeter attack, featuring Andrew Goudelock (16.0 ppg.), Devin Smith (14.0 ppg., 6.2 rpg.) and Sonny Weems (13.4ppg., 4.3 apg.), which has the club fifth in the league in scoring (82.6 ppg.). The duo of Colton Iverson (9.6 ppg., 5.2 rpg.) and Maik Zirbes (8.8 ppg.) gives Coach Rami Hadar an excellent one-two punch inside. Darius Miller (13.5 ppg.) is Bamberg’s top scoring option, while power forward Nicolo Melli (12.5 ppg., 7.7 rpg.) has emerged as a premier threat, too. Janis Strelnieks (11.9 ppg.), Nikos Zisis (9.4 ppg., 5.4 apg.) and Fabien Causeur (8.4 ppg.) round out a deep Bamberg backcourt and sixth man Daniel Theis (9.9 ppg., 5.2 rpg., 1 bpg.) is a force for Coach Trinchieri inside, too. Bamberg is last in the league in steals (3.2 spg.), but among the league leaders with 3.4 blocks per game. Maccabi is bottom of the table in blocked shots (1.5 bpg.). Bamberg also leads the EuroLeague in free-throw accuracy (82.1 %), which could prove decisive if this game goes to the wire.
