Alba remains unimpressed

The Berliners initially had problems finding their rhythm and were 3:10 behind after around five minutes. But they then fought their way back into the game thanks to outstanding defensive work. This defense apparently impressed Keltern so much that the guests only managed a meager four points from this point on until the half-time break. Alba overran the defending champions with a 36:4 run across the quarter and pulled ahead at halftime.

After the break, Keltern became much more committed and now Alba had problems on the offensive. At the beginning of the last quarter the lead had shrunk to ten points (48:38). But the hosts remained unimpressed. The final spurt was theirs again and it became clearer again at the end.
