Eurocup semi-finals : Peyton Siva is Alba's metronome

For the Baker of the confidence of the basketball players of Alba Berlin is currently in a rich and productive time. As in the last Bundesliga game against Giessen, the Berlin cracked also on Tuesday in the first Eurocup semi-final against BC Andorra the 100-point mark, which is synonymous with a team round of Donuts. This Peyton Siva once again showed an outstanding performance and was awarded as in the quarter-finals as the most valuable player of the game day. Also, demands for additional back work to be on the Team, according to. The donut supply in the case of Alba, you need to currently have so really no Worries.

not only therefore, in the case of Berlin's leading basketball club are very glad that you have your U.S.-American Point Guard. After two long injury-breaks – in September, he broke a rib, the end of December, a knee injury put him out of action – is Siva, in time for the hot Phase of the European Cup back in tip-top shape. The tight 102:97 against Andorra he had 18 points, nine Assists and four Rebounds a big part in the Alba, launched in spite of great problems in the final phase in the series and a victory for the first European final since 2010, is missing. "You see how important it is to Peyton for us," says Manager Marco Baldi.

Without a Peno and Walton is asked Siva particularly

Just in the Eurocup depends very much of Siva. As Stefan Penos season due to injury is already completed and Derrick Walton may internationally be used, is the 28-Year-old is the only classic game maker. While Martin Hermannsson makes his case in the set-up is very good, but as a Shooting Guard. Especially since Siva brings a level of very rare total package: He is very fast, despite its size of 1.83 meters, but robust, his teammates, scores but also can finish at the basket, but also from the distance throw.

Baldi highlights Sivas, fine sense for the various phases of the game. "For us, it is crucial to find a Balance," says the Manager. In difficult situations of basketball players tended often to reduce speed to avoid errors. This is for Alba but fatal, because "we live by our Tempo." Siva understands it with his experience like no other in the Berlin Team, the right balance of control and risk, and the clock. "For me, a game maker from, which is Leadership," says Baldi. "It's different against Malaga two weeks ago, we had the game with Peyton and Luke Sikma always in Hand."

a Difficult trip to the Pyrenees

Siva himself who is playing his third season for Alba, looks at his achievements, nevertheless. "I got my rhythm, my knee's but still a few problems. I'm still not back at 100 percent,“ says Siva, the violation of which stand's susceptibility to an even greater career in the way. Since a couple of days of a cold, the coach Aito Garcia Reneses for the second game on Friday (20.15 plagues him now, live on Magenta sports) in Andorra is quite worried. "The break is short and the journey is exhausting," said Reneses. "Because it will be hard for him, the power to find, with the he normally plays."

Siva is located in Andorra, in any case a challenging task. "Home is a completely different Team and play very physical, with a lot of self-confidence," he says. In Eurocup, the Team from the Pyrenees, has won all nine home games. Not only the small, narrow hall is for the opponent uncomfortable, but also the arrival. Alba is flying on Thursday to Barcelona and departs from there around three hours by Bus in the 1000 meters of altitude location, the capital of Andorra. Maybe Siva discovered the store on the way to a Donut in its current Form it can't hurt for sure.
