Giessen 46ers vs Bayreuth
I have watched Giessen only shortly against Bayern and they are interesting team, they are good in offense but not great in defense. They have 4 Americans and some interesting Europeans. It is significant that all their games are tight and most of them end up around 180+ points. With slower teams it ends up around 165-170 points. In the Cup against Bayern they scored 92 points while letting them to score 106. Even with a bit slowier Frankfurt they ended on 91:90 result. With Bamberg they had 98:98 OT.
On other side is the hottest German team Bayreuth which plays in Champions league. They managed to beat Besiktas in Istanbul and Besiktas needed win badly(seems like both Besiktas teams had the same destiny and I was on both of them:), anyway, it was 74:90 and as you are all probably already familiar with, at least those who follow basketball, that Besiktas does not let many chances to their opponents and plays defense and were coming from a winning streak against Efes Pilsen and Darussafaka. In that game Besiktas had the lead at HT around 7 points and in second half Bayreuth managed to score 60 points!!! The main protagonist was Robertson, Canadian who has ambitions to join NBA with help of Stockton, son of famous NBA player Stockton.
In this game where Giessen does not pay too much attention to defense and if Bayreuth just picks up where they left in Istanbul they will reach 100 points. I see 87:102 game.
