Bavaria: Trinchieri decrees "Calma": basketball players have to sit in detention

FC Bayern missed the first chance of reaching the final. After the narrow home defeat against Bonn, there is little time to gather for game four. The coach warns to keep calm.

Munich (dpa / lby) - Bayern coach Andrea Trinchieri was angry about "the worst game in the series". At the same time, the impulsive Italian urged calm. The basketball players of FC Bayern Munich have to go into extra time on the way to the playoff final after the narrow 84:86 (40:45) against Telekom Baskets Bonn on Saturday evening.

"We lost the game because we deserved it," said Coach Trinchieri: "Now we have to keep calm, calma, collect ourselves and be ready for Monday." Then Bayern (throw-off: 6:00 p.m.) have the second chance to win the necessary third win in the best-of-five series with a score of 2-1. Defending champion Alba Berlin is already in the final series.

After two home defeats in the semi-finals in Munich, Bonn got off to a better start, found various offensive options and were in the lead for a long time thanks to the better three-point quota. After the sixth successful long-distance throw, the guests were at times in double digits. With Gavin Schilling on the field, Bayern then stopped Bonn's 10-0 run and reduced it to 40-45 by the break.

Driven by 6000 spectators, Bayern came very close to victory in the second round. After Javontae Hawkins, who became the top scorer with 19 points, had given Bonn the lead 85:84 with a converted free throw, Karsten Tadda blocked Munich's Nick Weiler-Babb's layup on the other side.

"We lacked a bit of energy," said the Bayern player. Trinchieri gave another valid reason for the loss: "If you allow 20 points after offensive rebounds, it's impossible to win the game." You have to "collect yourself now," warned Weiler-Babb. There isn't much time for that.
