Bayern Munich edged ALBA in Berlin in Game 2 of the German League Finals (77-82) and came one step away from the title (2-0).

ALBA made a great start (23-12), but Bayern reacted and cut the deficit to one at halftime (46-45).

The Bavarians earned a 12-point lead in the third quarter (61-73), yet the hosts went on an 11-0 run to cut the deficit to one (72-73).

ALBA attempted to “steal” the victory (77-78, with 13 seconds to go), but the visitors held on and sealed the deal.

Devin Booker led the winners with a game-high 16 points, whereas Franz Wagner and Rokas Giedraitis had 14 points apiece for the losing squad.

Game 3 will be played in Munich on Sunday.
