Bayern plays host to the MBC on Tuesday evening
Season game number 58 for the Bayern Basketballers: The marathon continues on Tuesday evening with a home game in the Audi Dome against Mitteldeutsche BC, tip-off at 19:00. Head coach Andrea Trinchieri's team is looking for its seventh BBL win in a row to secure qualification for the BBL playoffs before heading to Spain for another EuroLeague showdown with Valencia on Wednesday afternoon. The game is on Thursday evening at 21:00. On Friday, they will travel from the Mediterranean coast directly to Hamburg where Bayern will compete on Saturday evening (20:30 clock) for the first time ever.
All games, as always, have a 15-minute lead-in and are broadcast live by MagentaSport.
TO THE LIVETICKER
It's the third reunion with the Syntainics MBC after an early-season 90-67 cup win and a 96-84 road victory in early December in the BBL. The guests have struggled after a good start of the season and are now in 16th place. This puts them again threateningly close to relegation.
MBC-Guard Michalak is top scorer of the Bundesliga
The Weissenfels team also has the best scorer in the BBL: Polish guard Michal Michalak leads the BBL with an average of 20.4 points, and his three-point percentage is an impressive 43 percent. The MBC has one of the best offensive teams (85 ppg), but the problem is the defense - in the last three games they conceded an average of 100 points.
With five games in the next ten days, Bayern will again rotate properly, definitely missing injured captain Nihad Djedovic.
