The men of Haspe starts the 2nd half of the season against the Giants Saturday in Dusseldorf. We got our 1st and only win of the 1st half of the season against Dusseldorf. They are a better team now, they have a new guard import and lately is playing better basketball. They now have 8 wins and 4 losses on the season. The Giants are a really good team and I believed just needed more time playing with each other. They are playing their best basketball right now and this will be a very tough game for us.
In the first game we had only 13 turnovers, that again will be important for us. We have to take care of the basketball if we want to have a chance at winning this game. Also, important for us is coming out aggressive on the defensive end of the court. We have to do a really good job trying to slow their imports. Their imports is averaging 57 of the teams 76 points per game. We will have to try to take away their imports and make other guys make plays.
Practice is going good, everyone is healthy and we are a better team now. Still have to correct the small details that are costing us game and I am sure the guys will be ready. Tip-off is 19:00 in Dusseldorf.
