With the Bode and Pergamon Museum, the last two houses on Berlin's Museum Island are now to open after the corona-related closings. Both museums should be open to the public again from October 3rd, as the State Museums in Berlin announced on Thursday. All museums were closed in mid-March, and since mid-May, individual houses had gradually let in visitors.
But then Maccabi woke up and then hit back with a 25-2 run. The Berliners did not hit many open litters. Maccabi also defended more intensely and hardly allowed any easy throwing positions. Alba, on the other hand, lost access defensively. At times the Alba defense fell completely apart. They especially couldn't cope with the athleticism of the hosts.
However, the Berliners caught up again and fought their way back to two points after the break (47:49). The guests acted at eye level again. However, they failed to take the lead again several times. Alba had problems especially under the basket and too often gave Maccabi a second chance. In the final quarter, the Berliners tried everything again, but in the end gave too many litters to cause a surprise.
