|Anthony Gaffney scored 26 points in just 28 minutes for Telekom Baskets Bonn|
Szolnoki Olaj may have won decisively over Okapi Aalstar last week but they were no match for Telekom Baskets in Germany on Wednesday.
In the EuroChallenge Last 16 Group J game, the Bonn team led by as many as 25 before coasting to an 89-75 triumph with Anthony Gaffney scoring 26 points.
Michael Koch's side, leading 22-20 early in the second quarter, reeled off 17 of the game's next 19 points to take a vice-like grip on proceedings.
After Talor Battle scored, Benas Veikalas caught a pass from Jared Jordan and nailed a three-pointer.
Battle then followed with a lay-up for a 29-20 advantage.
Telekom Baskets kept the pressure on and took a 48-30 lead to half-time.
They were in total command the rest of the way.
Telekom Baskets, after falling in their Last 16 opener to Okapi, rebounded with a last-second, come-from-behind victory over Elan Chalon last week.
Wednesday's victory improved the club to 2-1 in Group J while Szolnoki dropped to 1-2.
Hristo Nikolov had 25 points in defeat.
Telekom Baskets had 25 assists to just seven for the Hungarian team.
