GHP Bamberg 80 - Ural Great 78

Steffen Hamann
Young German prospect and national team player Steffen Hamann led the German side in front of 3.550 spectators with 9 points to an 18-14 lead after the first quarter. Both teams weren’t a big scoring threat, hitting under 40 percent from the field in the first minutes but Latvian forward Helmanis closed the first period with a three-pointer in the final second to open that margin to 4 points.

Estonian sharp shooter Kullamae sparked the second quarter with five three-pointers in a row for Bamberg to withstand the successful running game of Perm mainly finished by experienced forward Daineko.

The 14th minute provided a big shock for the German team when their American star player, former NBA-pro Jason Sasser left the game with a very bad looking ankle injury and never came back on the court.

The first half ended tied with 37-37. Ural Great closed the gap because of courageous play by European champion Lavrinovic who came off the bench to score 10 points and grab 6 boards while Bamberg relied on 15 points from Kullamae.

After the break Bamberg took the lead with 57-46 thanks to their Baltic duo Helmanis and Kullamae, the latter hit the Russian basket with his 8th shot from downtown. But Perm were on their way back into the competition with their excellent passing game and a turnover forcing defense to cut the lead down to four.

Just when Perm came close, Kullamae answered the attack with his 10th successful three-pointer of the night, which increased Bamberg’s lead to 75-68 with three minutes to go. Nevertheless Perm managed to tie the game 90 seconds before the end when Chikalkin hit two free throws (77-77). Helmanis made a big steal and finished with a dunk with eleven seconds to go. In the last second Chikalkin missed the potential game winning shot.

Both teams missed injured starting players for the game, Bamberg guard Rick Stafford and Perm forward Ruslan Avleev.

MVP of the game: Gert Kullamae
