Milano vs Milano
OLIMPIA MILANO - BASKET BRESCIA
Milano and Brescia in the playoffs semifinals. Game 2. These two are 2nd and the 3rd seeded team from the regular season.
The series started surprisingly. Brescia took the lead after winning Game 1 here in Milano, 82:85.
It was a game where Milano had weak opening and thus was almost double digits down already after first period. So, although the host later won every of the next three periods, they still lost the game.
No matter of the weak start, Milano was close to turn things around. Micov brought the tie at 80 each after hitting the late 3 pts shot. Then also Goudelock had chance to secure victory but missed the three. And finally Micov in last second missed for a new tie that would push game into overtime.
But, clearly everything what was going on, heavily was affected by the sloppy start of the game from Milano.
This is exactly the reason why I expect way stronger start from the host this time. The last Milano need is to chase result again.
My bet is on Milano to cover first quarter handicap.
Milano is a better side. Don't forget they competed in the Euroleague this season. Plus now with 0-1 and the next two games scheduled in Brescia, those are the reasons I belive in max effort from the host from the very first minute of this Game 2.
