Two days after the clear opening victory, the capital also won on Sunday and led after 97:85 (47:34) in the best-of-five series with 2: 0. The favorite’s best pitcher was Jaleen Smith with 18 points. FC Bayern Munich is also on course so far. The Euroleague quarterfinalist defeated Niners Chemnitz in the evening with 93:76 (49:26) and also leads 2: 0.

Bamberg and Chemnitz had to win three games in a row to go through. The next two matches would take place in Bamberg, a possible fifth match would be in Berlin again. In the ensuing semi-final, MHP giants Ludwigsburg and ratiopharm Ulm are possible opponents for Alba or Bamberg. Ludwigsburg won the first match after two overtime games on Saturday.

Deshaun Thomas was the best pitcher for Munich with 22 points. Formerly-feared opponent Chemnitz, who had won all three obligatory duels before the playoffs this season, has so far been unable to counter Bayern’s offensive power. There were seven home wins in seven games in the first playoff weekend.
