With the third win in a row, the Niners Chemnitz kept their small chance of entering the playoffs of the Basketball Bundesliga (BBL).
Coach Rodrigo Pastore’s team won 81:68 (47:39) against BG Göttingen, who were fifth in the table, and improved to tenth place three games before the end. The top eight teams advance to the main round.
With 16 points, Wes Clark was the most successful thrower for the guests, who led without a break from the sixth minute. In Göttingen, who suffered a setback in the battle for home advantage in the first play-off round, the 27 points scored by Norwegian Harald Frey were unable to prevent what was only the fourth home defeat of the season.
