ALBA Berlin outlasted Brose Bamberg with an 82-66 victory to seal its ticket to the German Cup final. ALBA will join EWE Baskets, which sealed its ticket earlier on Sunday against Ulm.

Rokas Giedraitis led three more ALBA scorers in double digits with his 16 points and two rebounds, while on the other side of the court Bryce Taylor tapped 15 points for Bamberg.

Through efficient defense in the third period, ALBA managed to pull away with a 70-43 lead, though Bamberg reacted in the fourth period. Still, their 23-12 run wasn’t enough to overthrow ALBA that made its way to the final of the Cup.
