The run extended to 0-11 for a 9 point lead until two scores from Jaakson stopped the drought. Novotny nailed a three-pointer for GBA and Tomas Mikyska tallied two scores to trim the gap to 24-26. Mega would not let GBA grab the lead and Nedeljkovic tallied 8 points the rest of the half and Mega was up 32-36 at intermission.

GBA held Mega scoreless for more than 3 minutes to start the second half but could not take advantage and still trailed 34-36. After Vladan Music’s basket made it 34-40, Novotny nailed three three-pointers to pull GBA within 43-44. Music scored again and Mega was up 43-47 after 30 minutes. Cerovina picked up six points to keep Mega ahead but Modestas Marscionka and Jaakson both knocked down three-pointers to knot the game at 55-55. Nedeljkovic answered with a three-ball of his own and Pavle Kuzmanovic converted a three-point play to push Mega ahead 57-61. Marscionka would cut it to 59-61, but Aleksandar Langovic made two free throws and then Cerovina knocked down a three-pointer with 22 seconds left for a 59-66 lead - and secure the victory.
