After igniting its season with consecutive victories, FC Bayern Munich (5-6) will look to keep climbing the standings with a visit from EA7 Emporio Armani Milan (4-7).
Improving Bayern hosts halting Milan
Serge Ibaka inspired the German team’s big win over Virtus last week with a huge double-double of 24 points and 13 rebounds, and the veteran center will look to stay hot against Milan’s array of big men. Ibaka’s average of 6.6 boards per game has helped make Bayern the league’s top rebounding team with 40.1 per night. Milan’s main offensive weapon is its long-range shooting, ranking second in the competition with a 40.8% conversion rate from deep, and Shavon Shields has been on fire from deep in recent weeks with an average of 3.8 triples in the last four games.
