The Take

Champs look to start new winning streak in trip to Munich

Reigning Turkish Airlines EuroLeague champion Anadolu Efes Istanbul had won four in a row before losing in overtime last week to FC Barcelona. The champs will look to start a new winning streak when they visit FC Bayern Munich on Thursday. Bayern (6-7) has won three of its last four games, including a tough 73-65 decision against LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne last week in which Augustine Rubit posted 19 points and 12 rebounds. Bayern has won three straight games at home, where it is 4-2 this season. Efes (6-7) has won its last two road games after losing its first four this season. Last season Bayern won both regular-season games against Efes, but Efes had won all four of their previous meetings.

Marquee matchup: Bayern’s Weiler-Babb vs. Efes’s Micic

Not everything Nick Weiler-Babb does for FC Bayern Munich can be seen in the box score and Coach Andrea Trinchieri will look for his trustworthy guard to keep EuroLeague MVP Vasilije Micic of Anadolu Efes Istanbul in check this week. After missing most of last season through injury, Weiler-Babb has averaged 4.5 points, 3.9 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.0 steal per game this season. He has started the last two games and played at least 31 minutes each time. Micic remains one of the toughest players to guard in the league and has averaged 16.6 points and 4.1 assists per game this season. Efes is 2-3 this season when Micic’s PIR has been below 10 and that will be Weiler-Babb’s goal this week.

Keys to victory: Bayern vs. Efes

FC Bayern Munich has the fourth most accurate three-point shooting team in the league at 36.4% and is facing an Anadolu Efes Istanbul that has allowed the most three-pointers (10.4 per game) at the best accuracy (37.9%). If Corey Walden, Vladimir Lucic and DeShaun Thomas can take advantage and light it up from downtown, Bayern will be in a strong position to win.

Efes is second in the league in scoring with 83.1 points per game and has a 5-2 record when it’s scored at least 85 points. The goal in Munich, which is missing its top scorer Darrun Hilliard to injury, will be to push the ball with its backcourt trio of Vasilije Micic, Shane Larkin and Rodrigue Beaubois knowing that it will be difficult for Bayern to keep up in a shootout.
