Trento - Venezia
Venezia earned win number three in this final with a win in the previous game on their home floor. The finals of the Italian Lega A continues today with the 6th match in Trento whose team needs to win to avoid losing the final while Venezia will at least have home court advantage of they lose this game in a decisive game 7 back in Venice. Start of the match: 20.06.2017.-20:30 CET
Most probably Trento will regret losing the previous game(63:65) because they controlled the game and the result from start to finish losing in the last possession because of carelessness. They are now down 3:2 and in case they won the last game they would now be in a position to win the title with a home win. This way they will have take the hard way and win to at least earn a game 7 back at Venice. In the last game Trento was up by 10 at the half and at the start of the 3rd quarter by 12 pts but objectively in the end they lost because of fatigue and very hectic rhythm.Their coach Buscaglia used only 8 players and 7 of them carried out the most of the load in that last game because Lechthaler played only 6 minutes. Their best player was Craft with 16 pts, 8 rebounds and 5 assists while Hogue had the most points scored(17). Probable starting lineup: Craft, Gomes, Shields, Flaccadori, Hogue
With Bramos´s 3 pointer in the very finish of the last game Venezia saved themselves from losing at home and now they are much closer to winning the title and their third title in total in 4 finals they´ve appeared in. However, they won their last tow titles during WW II and their last final was back in 1946. The title still isn´t won however after being demolished by Trento in this hall last time these teams met(78:56). It is apparent that with it´s longer bench Venezia is making up for the lack of energy and in the fifth game they managed to despite being down big at the half and also until Bramos took the game winning shot they only led twice throughout the whole game(at the very start of the match). Their coach De Raffaele used 11 player and only Visconti didn´t enter. Haynes and McGee were the only double digit scorers with 13 and 11 pts while the hero Bramos ended the game with 7 pts and 7 rebounds. Probable starting lineup: Haynes, Bramos, Peric, Stone, Ejim
Trento - Venezia TIP
Trento demonstrated in the last game they can easily beat Venezia on their floor. They have beaten Venezia in 4 out of 7 h2h games this season and this match shouldn´t contain too many because it is obvious both teams are playing with a dose of care and fatigue has also become an issue. We are giving the advantage to Trento in this one because they have showed better defense so far and we think this away team margin is too high for this match.
