Triple dream bursts: Bavaria fail in Eurocup
Bayern Munich also lose their second semi-final match against Istanbul in the European Basketball Cup. The guests have one player from the triple line running hot.
The basketball players of cup winner Bayern Munich have missed the EuroCup final.
Three days after the unnecessary 74:76 first leg bankruptcy at the Turkish club Darüssafaka Istanbul, the Bundesliga leader also lost the second game of the best-of-three series in his own hall after another half-time lead with 83:87 (44:41) (DATENCENTER: results/play schedule).
Reggie Redding scored 14 points for coach Sasa Djordjevic’s team, who led 17 points in Istanbul at half-time.
Istanbul’s Bosnian international Scottie Wilbekin, however, made the Bavarians desperate. The American-born scored 41 points on a dream day, turned ten three in 15 attempts alone and prevented a decisive third game next Wednesday in Istanbul.
