In the first half it went back and forth, it dominated the offensive rows in both teams. The hamburger scored 50 points in the first 20 minutes, but were only a counter in front, as Ulm was offensively a good rhythm.

The hosts were now on top and just at the victory. However, it was not enough, because in the final phase Ulm kept the upper hand.
