In two previous seasons, Bonn has struggled to avoid relegation from the Bundesliga, and this season they have made a real sensation. They finished the regular season in second place with 26 wins and 8 losses. The architect of this success is head coach Tuomas Iisalo who came to Bonn last summer after doing an outstanding job at Crallsheim Merlins for five years. The team underwent a complete reconstruction and all the players who have an important role came at the same time when Iisalo became head coach. By far, the best player on the team is point guard Parker Jackson-Cartwright. He was named MVP of the regular season in the Bundesliga, and the fact that he played in the second French League last season shows how good job Bonn did last summer with signing him. Jackson-Cartwright averaged over 20 points per game in regular season, and against Hamburg he scored a total of 108 points in three games (36 per game average). Javontas Hawkins and Saulius Kulvietis also play an important role in offense, while the rest of the team is playing good defense.

For the second season in a row and for the second time in the club’s history, Bayern played in the Euroleague quarterfinals. Just like last year, they led the series to a decisive fifth game, but were defeated by Barcelona in Blaugrana. Compared to last season, head coach Andrea Trinchieri had a team with less talent in offense, but that did not stop them from playing impressively in defense. Bayern had a lot of injury problems throughout the season, while on a couple of occasions they stop to practice due to the corona virus, so they faced a lot of obstacles. The best player Vladimir Lucic has extended his contract for another three years, which is great news for Bayern. What is not good is that the club from Munich has not won the title since 2019, and the primary goal is to change that. In the last two years, Alba Berlin has lifted the trophy in Bundesliga, and in order to get into a situation to battle for the title at all, Bayern will have to eliminate Bonn first. The main task will be to slow down Jackson-Cartwright and the outcome of this series will depend on it.

Bonn and Bayern have played twice against each other this season and both times the home team has won convincingly.
Jeremy Morgan and Justin Gorham did not play for Bonn against Hamburg are both of them are questionable for this game. Darrun Hilliard is out for the season and he won’t be able to help Bayern in the Bundesliga playoffs. Othello Hunter is probable to play.
Bonn played impressively in regular season and in the quarterfinals against Hamburg as well, however against Bayern it will all be a lot harder. Visitors are a much better team and at this moment they will do everything they can to win.
