Even if it looks like a balanced series, I think this is the end for Bayern Munich. They had a great year being the first German team ever that reached the Euroleague playoffs, but this is it. I trust Olimpia Milano to advance from this series because:
- they have a much better roster and the rotation has more quality. Bayern have skilled players, brave fighters for every ball, the good move of the ball, a good coach, but the Italian squad is much better. From the starting 5 till the last player on the bench Olimpia Milano looks better than Bayern Munich.
- Experience is on the Milano side too. Kyle Hines, Sergio Rodriguez, Luigi Datome, Malcolm Delaney are leading the group and they could be crucial in some difficult moments. They have been before involved in many playoffs, Final 4 and some of them are Euroleague winners. Ettore Messina is as well an experienced coach at this level.
- Even if Olimpia Milano lost the last 2 games in Germany this detail is not important because they still have the home-court advantage for the last encounter and it is all that matters. A 3-0 series would have been boring for everybody. A tied series till the last game is very exciting.
I expect Olimpia Milano to win without problems the battle, entering in the final 4 that they deserved after their best season in decades.
