ALBA Berlin vs Bayern
Game 2 in the Bundesliga playoffs finals
Alba made a break and took 1-0 lead in this series. The result of game played in Munich. 95:106.
But it wasn't so easy as the result might suggest. That was overtime win, 87:87 in regular 49 minutes.
I didn't expect it. I thought no way Alba could play such great offensive game in Munich. But they proved me wrong and repeated everything we saw in previous rounds. Namely, Alba eliminated Ludwigsburg with 3-0 and scoring 102, 100 and 91 in those three games. Before that Alba has eliminated Oldenburg with 3-2 and averaging amazing 96 pts in those five games.
All that wasn't coincidence cause they had also in regular season 90+ average. Still, I expected their 3 pts % won't be so high in Munich, but it was.
Bayern wasn't able to slow them down in Munich, I don't know how they can do that now in Berlin. I don't say Bayern can't rebreak but in that aim team from Munich need amazing offense today. Cause, these guys from Alba seems like don`t have intentions to stop. Some really ridiculous numbers for them.
I made mistake last time with bet on Bayern although there was chance at the end. Weak half for Bayern but they turned things around later in the second and from being double digits down, Bayern took 72-70 lead in the third, had also in fourth quarter in few occasions +3. But they couldn`t close the game, we saw over time and they lost. But the good for Bayern is that Vladimir Lučić finally got back in the team last time.
IMO the best approach for this Game 2 is option Team Total: Alba over 85.5 pts. I can't say how Bayern will react and whether they will be able to bounce back. But clearly for victory in Berlin, Bayern need outstanding game, first of all in offense cause they can't count on limiting Alba's FG %.
