Iscar Strauss 91 vs. BS Energy Braunschweig 67


Henrik Dettmann took a rejuvinated Braunschweig side to Israel this evening for their FIBA Europe League match-up with Strauss Iscar Nahariya. Former German national team coach Dettmann has been able to turn the team's fortunes around since taking over in December, including 2 consecutive FIBA Europe League wins.

But Braunschweig met their match against Nahariya, and after 3 strong quarters, fell to a 91-67 defeat.

It was the German team that started the game strongest. The inside pair of Marko Jovanovic and Joakim Blom combined for 17 points and a 10-0 run midway through the first quarter saw Braunschweig open up an 8-point advantage.

But Nahariya's Roger Farrington finished the period with 5 consecutive points and the home team pulled to within 3 points at the buzzer, 19-22.

The game stayed close in the second quarter and it was only in the last 3 minutes that Nahariya took the lead. It came courtesy of Barak Peleg, who nailed consecutive three-pointers, giving his team a 40-36 lead at the half.

4 turnovers in the opening minutes of the third quarter seriously dented Braunschweig's hopes of leaving Israel with a victory. By the time Srdjan Djuric hit the first shot of the quarter for the Germans, they trailed 50-39 and Nahariya were in cruise control.

Braunschweig were unable to make any inroads into Nahariya's lead and their advantage continued to grow in the fourth quarter.

Four of Nahariya's starters contributed double digits in scoring, led by Eric Campbell with 17.

Joakim Blom finished with a season high 22 points for Braunschweig.
