Kataja Basket (FIN) vs. Södertälje Kings (SWE) at 17:30 CET - Live streaming on fanseat

Södertälje Kings certainly had no reason to change much after being crowned Swedish champions but have brought in American duo Grant Johnson and Delvon Johnson (not related) while they lost influential Swedish international Dino Pita.
