A week after finally gaining its first win of the season, Veolia Towers Hamburg (1-6) will look to build more momentum by overcoming visiting playoff-chasing Wolves Vilnius (3-3).
Hamburg welcomes Wolves in Group A battle
The German team's narrow win at Cedevita was led by 26 points from Aljami Durham, who has made 57.1% of his three-point attempts this season and reached double digits in scoring on four occasions. Wolves needs to bounce back from last week's surprise home loss against Reyer, and will look to crash the boards after averaging 12.2 offensive rebounds per game so far – second-most in the league. The consistent Tre'Shawn Thurman is the key man in that approach, averaging 2.7 offensive boards per game as well as 16.7 points.
