In an incredible game which went down to the final, Telekom Baskets Bonn rallied from a 17-point deficit in the final 13 minutes to edge Paris Levallois 81-78 at home in Group A on Wednesday. Bonn improved to 2-2 while Paris dropped to 1-3. Ryan Brooks led the winners with 15 points. Angelo Caloiaro added 14 while Tadas Klimavicius had 11 for Bonn. Sharrod Ford led Paris with 19 points and 12 rebounds. Blake Schilb added 17 points for the guests, which led 15-22 after 10 minutes and extended their margin to 29-43 at halftime. A three-pointer by Schilb and free throws by Landing Sene made it a 17-point game, 44-61, late in the third quarter. Anthony Vroblicky and Florian Koch ignited the hosts' comeback and Brooks brought Bonn within 61-67. Mickey McConnell shined with 7 unanswered points for a 74-75 deficit. Schilb gave Paris a 74-78 edge but Caloairo, Klimavicius and McConnell combined for all points in a final 7-0 run which allowed Bonn to get an incredible win in come-from-behind fashion!

Early three-pointers by Sane and Schilb got Paris going, 2-8. Schilb hit another triple but Benas Veikalas and Brooks answered from downtown for an 8-11 Bonn deficit. Nicolas Lang hit a jumper and Ford soon added a layup-plus-foul for a 9-16 Paris lead. Klimavicius and Ford traded baskets and a jumper by Schilb boosted the guests' margin to 11-20. Steve Wachalski and Klimavicius brought Bonn within 15-22 after 10 minutes. Back-to-back baskets by Brooks gave the hosts hope, 19-24, early in the second quarter. Maleye Ndoye sank a jumper and an outstanding Ford restored a 23-31 Paris edge. Veikalas hit his second triple but Ford stayed unstoppable and three-pointers by Mike Green and Ndoye made it a double-digit game, 29-43, at halftime. Lang struck from downtown right after the break but back-to-back triples by Caloairo got Bonn within 35-46. Eugene Lawrence and Caloairo insisted from beyond the arc but Paris kept finding points inside and a dunk by Ford gave his team a 41-56 margin. A three-pointer by Schilb and free throws by Sane made it a 17-point game, 44-61. Vroblicky and Koch stepped up to bring Bonn within 55-67 after 30 minutes. A 6-0 run which Brooks capped with a jumper brought Bonn back to life, 61-67. JBAM dunked and Green made free throws but Lawrence and Klimavicius got Bonn even closer, 67-71. The hosts found a new go-to guy in McConnell, who had 7 unanswered points for a 74-75 deficit with 3 minutes left. Schilb and Louis Labeyrie made foul shots which Caloiaro erased with a triple. A layup by Klimavicius completed the hosts' wild comeback, 79-78, with 24 seconds left. Schilb missed from downtown and McConnell rounded Bonn's win at the buzzer.

Head Coaches

FISCHER, MATHIAS
Telekom Baskets Bonn
"We expected a hard-fought contest, and that’s what we got. Paris shot the ball extremely well in the first half. After intermission we went to switching more assignments on defense to deny easy entry passes. The very last basket by Mickey McConnell was a nice bonus, because you never know what’s going to happen in the re-match a couple weeks from now – maybe we’ll need that little extra gap. Having as many as eight players connecting from long range is a sign for us being willing to share the ball."
BEUGNOT, GREGOR
Paris Levallois
"I hope my team is able to gain as much experience as possible from this game. We have many young players on our roster that make mistakes in certain situations. On the other hand, I have to give my veterans a few breaks, because if they are on the court too long, they’ll be exhausted in crunch time. For the last five minutes we did not play to win, we played to not lose the game."

Players

KLIMAVICIUS, TADAS
Telekom Baskets Bonn
"This game was nice to see for all the fans in attendance, but for us players and coaches involved it’s been tough. Having to fight for the lead for over 39 minutes makes us even happier to eventually come away with the win. We need these kinds of games to grow as a team and gain experience. Thanks to our good defense and attitude we were able to turn this one around."
FORD, SHARROD
Paris Levallois
"We did not finish the game the way we should have. If you don’t put a complete game on display on the road you’ll get punished. For most parts of the second half we were not able to match Bonn’s intensity."
