White kept Bonn within 51-48 late in the third quarter but consecutive three-pointers by Philipp Schwethelm boosted Oldenburg's lead to 59-51 after 30 minutes. Bonn got within 74-69 already in the final minute but a three-pointer by Scott Machado sealed the outcome.

Kramer was the first player to score and Paulding soon added his own basket but three-pointers by Jimmy McKinney and Lawrence soon gave Bonn a 4-6 lead. Kramer joined the three-point shootout and bettered Lawrence's basket with another triple for a 10-8 Oldenburg lead.

Madrick also struck from downtown but a three-point play by Aleksandrov and a basket by Machado restored a 17-16 Oldenburg lead. A three-pointer by Clarke put Bonn back ahead, 17-19, after 10 minutes. Back-to-back baskets by Madrich gave the guests a 19-23 margin early in the second quarter. Qvale quickly answered with consecutive baskets but Klimavicius had 4 points in a 0-6 run which boosted Bonn's margin to 23-30. Oldenburg called timeout and got 5 unanswered points from Paulding. By the time Paulding scored again, the game was tied at 32-32. Lawrence hit free throws but a 7-0 run which Aleksandrov capped with a triple gave the hosts a 39-34 edge at halftime.

Andrej Mangold and Qvale traded baskets right after the break and Madrich kept Bonn as close as 41-39. Machado hit free throws and Qvale scored around the basket but White singlehandedly kept the guests in the game, 45-42. Aleksandrov and Klemen Prepelic hit free throws and Qvale scored again but three-pointers by Clarke and Michal Chylinski brought Bonn as close as 51-48. Robin Smuelders scored down low and Schwethelm struck twice from downtown - beating the third-quarter buzzer with his second one for a 59-51 Oldenburg margin after 30 minutes.

"We invested a lot in the game. Comparing the two games against Bonn in the Eurocup, today we allowed 70 points instead of 89 in the first game. So I can agree with what we did. For the first time this season we had all our players healthy. That´s the reason why we are getting better step by step."
FISCHER, MATHIAS
Telekom Baskets Bonn
"I´m not satisfied with the game. We made a lot of mistakes on defense and had terrible free throw shooting. Oldenburg made 100 percent of theirs and got more rebounds. Nevertheless, for us it was a step in the right direction after our bad game in Bayreuth. "
