BBL semi-final: Bayern wins again clearly – Berlin equalizes

The Bayern basketball players also clearly win the second BBL semi-final game against Würzburg, while Berlin equalizes after an equally convincing performance against Chemnitz.

The basketball players of FC Bayern Munich are just one win away from reaching the finals of the Basketball Bundesliga. The best team in the main round also won its second home game in the playoff semi-final series against the Würzburg Baskets and leads the best-of-five series 2-0 after a 99:75 (48:44) victory. As in the first semi-final game, the favorite was never behind. The next game in the series will take place on Sunday in Würzburg.

As in the opening game, Bayern exploited their size advantage, with Devin Booker and Serge Ibaka scoring the first eleven Munich points. This time, however, Würzburg held on for longer and, thanks to Zac Seljaas, reduced the score to 21:22 at the quarter break. In the second period, the guests were also mostly on par with the favorites and were only behind 44:48.

After the break, Darius Perry kept Würzburg in the game for a long time, but at the end of the third period, Bayern still had a double-digit lead for the first time. Across the quarters, Munich pulled ahead to 90:65 with a 22:5 run and decided the game early. Three Bayern players, Isaac Bonga, Carsen Edwards and Vladimir Lucic, scored 14 points.
