Bayern Munich came back from a 17-point deficit and defeated Buducnost at home (93-88) to maintain a play-off push.

The visitors led by as many as 17 points in the game (21-38) and were in front by 11 at halftime (38-49). The hosts trailed by 16 early in the third quarter (39-55), but managed to turn things around.

Playing very well on both ends of the floor, they outscored their opponents 55-39 in the second half and earned a crucial win at home (93-88).

Derrick Williams led the winners with 21 points (8/13 shooting, 4/6 from beyond the arc), as four more players scored in double figures.

Norris Cole made an impressive debut for the losing squad, with 27 points and six assists, with the 19-year old Goga Bitadze posting 17 points, seven rebounds and four blocks in his EuroLeague debut.

Bayern Munich improved to 8-7, whereas Buducnost dropped to 3-12.
