The Take

Brose Bamberg will play its final EuroLeague game of the season at home against a team fighting for the last remaining playoff berth, Darussafaka Dogus Istanbul. Despite having lost all hope of advancing, Bamberg (10-18) has remained true to its spirit and won its last two road games, but will wish to give its loyal supporter in Freak City a parting gift. Darussafaka (14-14) has its destiny in its hands and will claim the final ticket to the playoffs if it wins its remaining two games, but the challenge will be in Bamberg, since Coach David Blatt’s men have lost their last seven road games going back to December. Darussafaka edged Bamberg 72-70 when they met in Round 6 in Turkey behind 17 points from Will Clyburn. Nicolo Melli posted a double-double for Bamberg in defeat. Bamberg relies on Melli (11.3 ppg., 7.5 rpg.) and Daniel Theis (9.6 ppg.) in the paint and Darius Miller (12.3 ppg.) and Fabien Causeur (9.9 ppg.) on the perimeter. Darussafaka’s top gun is point guard Brad Wanamaker (15.5 ppg., 4.7 apg.), who played two season in Bamberg and led the team to a pair of German crowns. He teams with Scottie Wilbekin (11.2 ppg.) to form a dangerous guard attack. Clyburn (12.9 ppg.) and James Anderson (10.0 ppg.) make sure the opposing defense never gets a moment of rest. Darussafaka is by far the superior rebounding team, especially on the offensive glass where its 12.0 per game rank second in the league and Bamberg is last at 7.3. Those second-chances could result in critical baskets on Friday.
