Game 1 (80:79) has shown that both teams are playing on a similar level, every little thing can decide a game in this series. Esch will have home-court on Wednesday and the defending champs are under pressure, their season could be over with a loss.
T71 has made a statement last Sunday by dominating game 1 on the road 94:68. After taking a quick lead to start the game, the team of coach Ken Diederich never looked back. Just at the right time, Tom Schumacher is starting to find his rhythm, in the play-in game against Arantia and in game 1, he had a hot shooting night, something his team will need going forward. The question for Résidence will be what they can change in order to turn this series around. Konen and Kreps led the team with 15 points, US-player Rideau had only 3 points while Eberhard scored 12, both of them know that their team needs more production from them.
