Sometimes it's almost a little scary, with what precision the predictions to come by Aito Garcia Reneses. On Friday, the Spanish coach of Alba Berlin had commented briefly on the possible Comeback of Peyton Siva. "If players from an injury come back, you always play a great urge to," said Reneses. "If Peyton is even stronger." On Sunday, the US-American Point Guard in the League stand-game in Bonn for the first Time after the end of December in the Training suffered knee injury on the floor – and confirmed his Trainer. Siva played almost 25 minutes, to put proper stats (12 points, 6 Assists, 3 Steals) and went with a energy to work, which suggested that he had paused for so long. So he helped Alba in front of 6000 spectators in the sold-out Bonner hall to a 93:81 (30:18, 21:23, 14:19, 28:21).
in addition to Siva also Joshiko Saibou returned to his ligaments tear in the ankle joint to the Team and so lacked with Stefan Peno (Saisonaus due to a serious knee injury) is a Albanian professional. The first few minutes were, but especially Niels Giffey. The captain scored in three and a half minutes eleven points and hit three Times from a distance. So, the Berlin earned a quick lead from the start and they remained there throughout the course of the game.
Bonn's Josh Mayo turns to
Just in the first quarter, Alba played quickly and precisely, what put the hosts in front of unsolvable tasks. Luke Sikma got some offensive rebounds, the Berlin came to many open throws, and after 14 minutes their lead had grown to 20 points. Siva was significantly longer on the floor, as this was to be expected after such a violation, perhaps. Even if the game makers, of course, not everything succeeded, he turned to his teammates with good passes and used his speed in the train to the basket.
in the middle of the second quarter came the Baskets Bonn in the match. Especially Josh Mayo (Topscorer with 29 points and 6/6 threes) braced himself against the impending defeat and so Alba's lead shrank to half with ten points.More about

In the second half, delivery by the Berliners for the first time, not much. The good rhythm from the beginning of the phase was gone, the throws are not as precise and so came the now very dedicated Bonner, in the meantime, up to two points. Really exciting it was in the last quarter yet. Sikma (23 points) acted, as usual, extremely clever, Rokas Giedraitis and Martin Hermannsson met a pair of threes and won the Albanian, ultimately, safely. "Josh Mayo today was unbelievable," said Alba's centre, John Thiemann. "We will have made a good Job and won the game."
