Berlin rump team defeats Heidelberg

Alba Berlin has continued its winning streak in the Basketball Bundesliga. The Berliners, who were shorthanded, won 78:70 (33.30) against the MLP Academics Heidelberg in the Max-Schmeling-Halle on Sunday

For the defending champions it was the fourth win in the fourth game. The best Berlin scorers were Yovel Zoosman with 18 and Christ Koumadje with 14 points. In addition to Maodo Lo, Johannes Thiemann, Jaleen Smith and Marcus Eriksson, who had been missing for some time due to injury, guard Jonas Mattisseck was added to the team after suffering a fractured metacarpal in the Euroleague game in Istanbul on Friday. Captain Luke Sikma also took a break.

Alba had never played together in this formation before, and it was already the third game in five days. Accordingly, the Berliners had a bumpy start. The hosts committed many miscommunications and missed shots against a Heidelberg team that defended very intensively. As a result, only a few baskets were scored in the first half and the game remained evenly balanced.

After the change of ends, more tempo came into the game, but it remained close. Alba was in the lead most of the time, but they could not pull away by more than five points. Heidelberg stayed in it mainly thanks to their distance shots. The hosts, however, were able to increase their lead in the final phase. The decision was made one minute before the end when Zoosman scored to make it 76-67.
