Ludwigsburg played another good season for their standards in the Bundesliga. They finished the regular season in fourth place and thus gained a home-court advantage in the quarterfinals of the domestic competition. The club made an excellent result in the FIBA Champions League as well, where they qualified for the semifinals for the second time in history. There, they lost to Manresa 63:55. Ludwigsburg played in the Bundesliga final in 2020 and the desire of the club management is to repeat that result in near future. To achieve that this year, they will have to eliminate Ulm and Alba Berlin, which will not be an easy task. Jonah Radebaugh and Justin Simon are the two key players in offense and they are top scorers. Veteran Tremmell Darden is still capable of scoring 10 points per game, while Jordan Hulls is the team’s best assistant with almost four assists per game. The architect of all the good results of Ludwigsburg in previous years is head coach John Patrick. He arrived at the club in 2013 and since then the rise of the club has begun.
👀😬 Hey @Mikrosohn, wollten nur kurz fragen wie‘s der Stimme geht und ob du Dienstag wieder fit bist? @Radebaugh12 macht‘s auch nicht so spannend – versprochen!

Under the leadership of Jaka Lakovic, Ulm have played in the Bundesliga semifinals in the previous two seasons and they want to repeat that success this year. Ulm made a big sensation in the Eurocup round of 16 when they eliminated Joventut in Spain. After that, they played against Virtus in Bologna, where they also had a chance to make another shock because they had a lead in the last four minutes, but they were defeated 83:77. This season, Ulm has brought in several players with NBA experience. Sindarius Thornwell and Jaron Blossomgame are the individuals on whom the Ulm offense depends the most and when they are in a good shooting mood, this team is able to beat any opponent in Germany. Former Chicago Bulls player Cristiano Felicio also played a significant role, while they also have Semaj Christon, a former Baskonia point guard. In the first game of the quarterfinal series, Ulm allowed Ludwigsburg to force overtime where they defeated them. Now, the focus will have to be on an even higher level because if Ulm is two wins behind after two games, it will be almost impossible for them to make a comeback in this series.
Der nächste unermüdliche Fight. 🧡

This quarterfinal series is played in best of 5, and in the first game, Ludwigsburg won 104: 99 after overtime. Those two teams have played against each other twice in the regular season and both times home team has won, so Ludwigsburg leads 2-1 in H2H this season.
Ethan Happ missed the last few games for Ludwigsburg due to injury and he is unlikely to play in this game as well. Rawle Alkins is questionable. Cristiano Felicio won’t play for Ulm, while all other players are available for coach Lakovic.
Ludwigsburg vs. Ulm Prediction
Ludwigsburg and Ulm are teams of quite similar quality. Both of them made a good result in Europe this season and it is to be expected that we will see another close game as was the case a few days ago.
