After initial difficulties: Bavaria wins against MBC
Until halfway through, the MBC will make things difficult for the front runner FC Bayern. Then the residents of Munich will come into play better and better and do justice to their role as favourites.
FC Bayern Bayern returned the favour with a victory in the Bundesliga after losing against Kazan in the EuroCup. The 24th. On the 11th day of the German Basketball Bundesliga, the Munich team played harder than expected against the Central German team BC, but with a clear 111:91 at the end, they left the field as the winner.
After a good start, the Bayern led after eight minutes of play already with a 12-point lead. 21:9 the guests from Central Germany were behind. But after a few successful threesomes, they came into play better and better.
Also because the defence was not sufficiently aggressive on both sides, the spectators saw a surprisingly even match until halftime at the Audi Dome in Munich. After two quarters of play, Igor Jovovic’s men even led 51:52.
But after the break, however, the Germans showed themselves to be stronger and more aggressive. Especially the duo Devin Booker and Danilo Barthel came into the match better and better. For the MBC, the game was getting harder and harder as the Germans not only beat better and better at the front, but also the defensive became more and more stable. Only thirteen points were able to score the 14th place in the third quarter.
Too little to put pressure on the front runner from Munich. With a 85:61 the Bayern could start into the last quarter.
With a threesome by Malte Schwarz, the MBC came a little closer to the Bayern at the beginning of the last third. The Munich team managed their lead and won 111:91.
On Wednesday, the showdown for the semi-finals in the EuroCup is expected in Bavaria. The decision against Kazan will be made on 8.30 pm in Munich.
