The Berliners started well and quickly led 8:2. A subsequent Ludwigsburg 10-2 run gave the visitors their first lead, but the Berliners remained unimpressed. With a lot of speed they were increasingly causing problems for Ludwigsburg. They also dominated the rebounds.

At the start of the second quarter, Alba continued to pull ahead with a 16-2 run. Only then did Ludwigsburg hit their shots a little better. After the break, the game became more hectic and turbulent. Many interruptions almost caused Berlin’s flow of play to come to a standstill.
