The final series has reached its first turning point. At 0-2, Děčín must work hard in their fortress tonight in order to avert the end of the season and not end up in their fifth final in the last eight playoffs with only silver medals. The weakened Děčín is under pressure and Opava will be on his scoreboard in the role of a „hunter“. The home side will definitely need scoring contributions and courage from as many players as possible, as guard Ty Nichols is now very heavily guarded, the opposition is trying to get the ball out of his hands as much as possible, and his teammates will have to take more of the responsibility. The biggest problems today is the absence of Anthony Walton (15.5 points, 6.4 rebounds, 7.3 assists) and Tomas Pomicálek (13.5 points, 5.9 rebounds, 1.1 assists). This is a big opportunity for Opava to complete their mission and win their fifth title, which would also be the first in 20 years.
