For the Bianconeri this is the last match of the season and, for this reason, the team ʺHe is working to try to have the best race possible – begins the assistant coach Olivieri – against a team that has been at the top of the table since the start of the championship and represents a surprise for how it was planned in the summer. For our part, we are aware that, for various reasons, we were unable to achieve the objectives we had set ourselves, but we want to end the championship in the best possible way: we must demonstrate to ourselves, to the managers and to the fans that we have always worked to obtain the maximum despite the various problems we found ourselves living with.

Bergamo finished the first round in first place in the standings, achieving a well-deserved qualification for the Final Eight of the Italian Cup, before ʺsuffer a physiological decline in the second half of the season. Surely – continues the Juventus assistant coach – in the last few games they have begun to manage the workload in view of the playoffs, as they are a team that can play an important role in the post seasonʺ.

Moving on to the technical analysis of the team coached by Dell'Agnello, Olivieri recognizes ʺRoderick and Taylor are two of the best Americans in the championship, capable of putting their teammates into rhythm as they produce almost 12 assists on average as a pair. Furthermore, Bergamo has a solid core of Italians and is a team that likes to run in transition and find offensive solutions in the first seconds of the action. Their big men are equipped with a good three-point shot and open the field to penetrations by Roderick and Taylor. Sergio is an important tactical weapon as he can play in both wing roles and this allows him to propose different quintets during the individual matches. meetingsʺ.

Among the tactical keys to tomorrow's match, Bertram's assistant coach identifies the ability to play ʺwith great discipline in attack in order to find shots constructed with good spacing. This must allow us to have coverage both on the rebound and on the perimeter in order to correctly execute the defensive transition. Our defensive balance and the ability to be ready against the one-on-ones and the pick'n'rolls they will offer will be another important key to the match..

Thus Mirza Alibegovic: ʺOn Saturday against Bergamo we want to end the season in the best possible way, obtaining a success. They are a team that has Taylor and Roderick as the game's reference points: we will have to be good at limiting them and not allowing them to find easy assists with which they can put their teammates in rhythm. The key to the match will be to be physical and have a good impact on the match, taking away their ability to run to limit their danger. We will also have to be united in the moments in which they produce their breaks, trying to prolong the moments favorable to us as much as possible during the entire match..
