The philosophy of Marco Baldi is easy to understand. It goes like this: will not be Contacted in Basketball. Even if the team is beaten. In each game, you have to give everything. "There is a rhythm in Basketball, you have to try to maintain," says the Manager of the Basketball Bundesliga team Alba Berlin. Therefore, one can. the man almost upset with the question of whether Alba've saved through the tired performance on Sunday against Oldenburg with regard to the coming tasks, a couple of energy reserves "Saved, we have nothing," he says.
on Wednesday Alba Berlin is located in the Arena at the Ostbahnhof, the Spanish Top Team Unicaja Malaga for the decision game in the Eurocup-quarter-finals (game start: 19 PM). As recently as last Friday, the Berlin had won this game with their best performance of the season at the 101:81-success in Andalusia. Alba played like a top team, two days later against Oldenburg (78:94) as a national average troop.
These two games say a lot about the team. You can delight like probably no other Team in the League. But she is not able to do this permanently in the tightly scheduled game plan. Manager Baldi sees it quite differently. "We play consistently," he says. "Only this week, and presents special requirements." However, the exception situation or not: For a European top team, the Berliner do not have the appropriate depth in the squad, as it is said in sports lingo. This means that The players that come out of the Bank, are high a bit far away from the root formation. In the case of opponents Unicaja Malaga, which has a significantly higher Budget, this is different. The close calendar, preparing the Andalusiern less problems.
The Sudden power of the followers of insane
Nevertheless, the Berlin-based go game not as an underdog in the crucial quarter-final. If they continue like the last, then a gloss would, after all, after the below-average performance against Oldenburg is now back full game against Malaga in the series. But of course, the Alba does not work as Basketball. At Alba you didn't know in the past few weeks, sometimes up in the final minutes, what comes out at the end. In the first leg against Malaga a week ago, in Berlin gave a 21-point lead, a couple of weeks before, but you made a similar point difference in your favor. "It was a roller coaster ride for our players," says Baldi.
This Jump makes the trailer incredibly. On the other hand, the emotional bond promotes hardly anything more to a team than the constant up and down. You can be in love with Alba this season, but you can suffer with the Team.More about
