Chemnitz pulls away early and advances to the semi-finals

In the duel for the BBL play-off semi-finals, Rasta Vechta was already trailing 1-2 against Europe Cup winners Chemnitz, but the balance of power became clear once again in game four

Chemnitz decided the best-of-five quarter-final series 3:1 in its favor with an unchallenged 84:67 (44:26) at newly promoted Rasta Vechta; after losing the second encounter, the visitors now notched up their second win in succession.

The foundation for that was laid by a convincing first half by the Niners, who already had an 18-point lead at the break and were able to hold on to it quite comfortably. “The intensity is very good,” Niners guard Dominic Lockhart said at half-time on “Dyn”, adding that it was “a question of strength. Whoever plays with more intensity will win. “

Alba Berlin is waiting

It was the Niners around their top scorer Jeff Garrett (19 points), even if Vechta came a little closer again in the meantime. Chemnitz had lost to Bonn in the quarter-finals last year (0:3).

Alba Berlin now awaits in the last four, with the former series champions surprisingly beating Telekom Baskets Bonn in three straight games.

For Vechta, on the other hand, a great season as a promoted team ends in the quarter-finals. In the final minutes of the game, the fans in orange gave a standing ovation lasting several minutes in honor of the season’s performance
