Jena asks Brunswick for revenge
After the close encounter a few weeks ago Science City Jena receives the basketball lions from Braunschweig and wants revenge.
The players of Science City Jena will receive a welcome reception on 20. The Basketball Löwen Braunschweig (from 3 p. m. LIVE on TV on SPORT1) on the 2nd day of the Basketball Bundesliga.
Already at the beginning of the year, on 5. January, both teams met. The game ended with the tightest of all possible results. The Braunschweigers won the first exchange of blows in a real thriller 69:68. 19-year-old youngster Lars Lagerpusch was the match winner for the lions, who set a new career record with 16 points and eight rebounds.
Four weeks later, a similarly hot fight between the two teams is expected. In the table, Jena ranks 12th with a balance sheet of 16:22 and is therefore directly ahead of the Braunschweig team in 13th place.
In order to still have a chance to participate in the playoffs, the players from Jena have to win. They also have to settle a score with the lions.
Fans in East Thuringia had to wait for the first home game in 2018 for over a month, and the atmosphere in the arena is likely to be enormous.
SPORT1 broadcasts the game LIVE on TV and LIVESTREAM from 3 p. m. and accompanies all BBL-games in the LIVETICKER.
