ALBA Berlin defeated FC Bayern Munich 81-69 on the road in Game 3 of the German BBL finals, to take a 2-1 lead in the series and shift the advantage back home.

Luke Sikma led the way with 13 points, 10 rebounds and 3 assists for ALBA, while Marcus Eriksson also tapped 13 points. Ben Lammers emerged with 10 points, as Maodo Lo and Niels Giffey shared 9 points apiece.

Bayern top scorer DJ Seeley (23 points, 5-7 from the three-point line) left the court in the midpoint of the fourth period after a bad fall and the severity of his injury is yet to be determined. After walking off to the lockers, he attempted to return to the game, though he soon again exited.

Nihad Djedovic tapped 12 points for the hosts, Vladimir Lucic added 10 and Wade Baldwin had 9 points.  Zan Sisko might not have been productive on the scoring end (0-2 FG), but tapped 10 assists and 6 rebounds for Bayern.

Game 4 of the finals takes place Sunday (13/06, 15:00 CET).
