Former Maccabi Tel Aviv forward Zoosman made a key three-pointer to give ALBA a seven-point lead (87-80). Wilbekin tried to keep his team alive with another three-pointer but then a missed shot from outside by Nunnally basically ended the game for the Israeli side. 

Back-to-back threes from Zoosman and Eriksson gave ALBA an eight-point lead (84-76), a comfortable cushion with three minutes left on the clock. 

The Israeli side, though, didn't lose composure. Scottie Wilbekin and Keenan Evans kept the team in contact. Maccabi went on a 10-4 run and cut the deficit to just two points (78-76) with less than 4 minutes remaining. 

The physical presence of Christ Koumadje close to the basket remained a big issue for Maccabi also in the final quarter. ALBA started the final period with a 7-0 run and extended the lead to 11 points (72-61).

In the first half, ALBA shot the ball really well from outside and finished the first 20 minutes up by 10 points (45-35). Marcus Eriksson had 11 points already, shooting 3/5 from outside.

Marcus Eriksson was the top scorer for ALBA Berlin with 19 points (2/2 2PT, 5/8 3PT), 1 rebound, 2 turnovers, and 14 PIR. 

Scottie Wilbekin was the top performer for Maccabi Tel Aviv with 22 points (2/4 2PT, 4/9 3PT, 3/3 FT), 2 rebounds, 5 assists, 1 steal, 1 turnover, and 28 PIR

ALBA Berlin: Marcus Eriksson 19, Christ Koumadje 12 (5 REB), Maodo Lo 11 (5 REB).

Maccabi Tel Aviv: Scottie Wilbekin 22 (5 AST), Ante Zizic 17 (6 REB), Derrick Williams 15, James Nunnally 10 (5 REB).
