Although Anadolu Efes had the advantage for most of the match, Aliağa Petkimspor kept the difference around 8-10 points. While Anadolu Efes’ different fives played in the match, Petkimspor’s comeback began with the guest team losing their offensive rhythm in the last period. The performances of Yunus Emre Sonsırma and Mahir Ağva were effective in this comeback for the home team. Petkimspor, which was undefeated at home this season, managed to catch Anadolu Efes in the last 2 minutes with the support of its fans. While Petkimspor was 3 points behind, as a result of the foul committed during Kristers Zoriks’ three-point shot with the last 8 seconds left, Zoriks returned 3 out of 3 from the shots won and equalized the score at 84-84. When Anadolu Efes could not get the ball out of the field in 5 seconds for the last attack, the ball was passed to the home team, but Petkimspor could not benefit from this ball and the match went to overtime. Anadolu Efes, which remained alive in the extra period, did not give its opponent a chance with Erten Gazi’s critical baskets and won the match.
