Game 2 of the Basketball Champions League Playoffs includes Hapoel Bank Yahav Jerusalem and Telekom Baskets Bonn on pretty undefeated streaks

By Johnny Askounis/

From Game 1 to Game 2 of the best-of-three series across the Quarterfinals field of the Basketball Champions League, two of the four visiting sides have yet to taste defeat away from home throughout the 2022-23 season.

The uncommon trend can keep Telekom Baskets Bonn alive and clinch a Final Four berth for Hapoel Bank Yahav Jerusalem. But a demanding challenge lies ahead for both sides.

They have both won all six games on the road between the Regular Season and the Round of 16. Checking more Game 2 visitors, Unicaja is 5-1. Defending BCL champion Lenovo Tenerife sitting at a solid 3-3 is not equally successful but certainly a threat for any host. Except for Bonn, the remaining three teams have the chance to reach the Final Four with a possible sweep.

Game 2 of the best-of-three series leading to the Final Four switches to the opposite venues, therefore, sending the two undefeated teams and entourage away from home, maybe for the best. Actually enjoying homecourt perks, AEK, BAXI Manresa, and UCAM Murcia will be looking to force a Game 3, but SIG Strasbourg snatching the Game 1 win in the nearby visit to Bonn can complete the upset and eliminate Tuomas Iisalo’s side instead of returning to Telekom Dome. The great matchups promise more excitement.
