Milano - Alba
In a clash between teams coming of spectacular wins, AX Armani Exchange Milan hosts ALBA Berlin on Tuesday in a makeup game from Round 6. Milan (5-3) edged Maccabi in overtime in Tel Aviv last week, while ALBA (3-6) reached triple digits for the first time this season when it bested Khimki Moscow Region 100-80. Milan is 3-1 at home this season, but ALBA is 1-2 on the rad with both losses coming by narrow margins.
Three times this season ALBA has scored more than 75 points and it won each of those games. ALBA ranks last in the league in three-point shooting (33.1%) and the absence of Marcus Eriksson further weakens the perimeter attack. However, with Niels Giffey, Jonas Mattiseck and Maodo Lo, the team has the shooters to threaten from deep, which it must do to capture another road win.
From this match i decide to play Alba s player Niels Giffey over 9.5 points.Giffey is a player to whom more minutes mean a lot because he is attack-oriented and has really good numbers for small minutes.
This is for him the best season of his career and now he has started attacking from a low post and said that the coach has given him a lot of freedom in his game this season.
Another big plus for this pick is that today Fonteccio is out for Alba and that will directly affect Giffey s minutes.
