Hamburg (dpa / lno) - For coach Pedro Calles and the Hamburg Towers, reaching the playoffs in the basketball Bundesliga is currently not an issue.
Before the two games against the Löwen Braunschweig on Wednesday and Saturday, the seventh-placed coach said: “We should remain humble.
If we changed our approach now because we were about to achieve our first goal of preventing descent, we would be making a big mistake. "
Mathematically, the Towers could take a big step if both games against Braunschweig were successful.
Because the current relegation candidates Vechta and Gießen have already played 23 games, but only recorded four wins each.
The Towers, on the other hand, have only contested 20 encounters, but have already won eleven times.
Because the first game against the Löwen, originally scheduled for January 31, was canceled due to a Corona case in Braunschweig, the first clash is only now taking place.
However, both clubs faced each other in preparation.
In October last year, the Towers won with 95:86.
"They exchanged a few players, but kept their identity," said Calles.
