The Latvian national player hit five three pointers in the game, three of which came at the end of in the first half.

However, American Steve Woodberry helped Honka to recover with several great assist to his teammates and Honka managed to get back into the game.

Bamberg took a 15 point lead with Gert Kullamäes and Helmanis' three pointers, in addition to world class baskets from Derrick Taylor. The last quarter was only question of playing down the clock. Due to its greater experience Bamberg won the game 80-67 against the young Playboys team.
