Basketball Bundesliga: Bayern in the championship final – Chemnitz leads against Alba

The Munich basketball team is the first finalist for the German championship. In Würzburg they also won the third game of the semi-final playoff series. Chemnitz is ahead against Alba.

The basketball players of FC Bayern Munich are the first team to qualify for the playoff finals for the German championship. The Munich team won against the Würzburg Baskets with 75:61 (38:33) and ended the best-of-five semi-final series with 3:0.

The opponent for the final series will be determined between the Niners Chemnitz and Alba Berlin. “We are just happy to be in the finals. We don’t care who our opponent will be,” said Munich’s Carsen Edwards on the streaming channel Dyn.

At the moment, it looks like the Niners Chemnitz will win. The Saxons need one more win to win the semi-final series against Alba Berlin. On Sunday, they beat the capital city team 84:72 (37:29) and are now leading the best-of-five series 2:1. The fourth game will take place on Tuesday (6:30 p.m.), also in Chemnitz.

Chemnitz turns up the heat in the final quarter

Chemnitz, which lost center Kevin Yebo early on due to a disqualification after a foul, was trailing until a few minutes before the end. Thanks to an 11-0 run in the final quarter and a strong defense, they managed to beat Alba. The home team outclassed the Berliners 31-11 in the fourth quarter.

The Würzburg team, already plagued by numerous injuries, had to do without Isaiah Washington (ankle injury) in the third game against Bayern. Nevertheless, the home team quickly found their way into the game in the sold-out tactake Arena, sinking most of their attempts into the opponent’s basket and conceding very little.

Bayern much more efficient from the second quarter

Bayern changed their lack of precision in the finish in the second quarter. The title favorite was now much more efficient. Würzburg, on the other hand, could not maintain their initial power and wasted too many balls. At 24:22 in the middle of the second quarter, Munich took the lead for the first time.

After the break, Serge Ibaka in particular was unstoppable under the basket, allowing the guests to pull further ahead. Würzburg never gave up, but had nothing to counter either. “Pride prevails. We gave our best. It was a great season,” said Baskets coach Sasa Filipovski.
