Tuomas Iisalo’s Telekom Baskets Bonn is having a tremendous season, which is now even better after a 77-73 win at Munich against F.C. Bayern.

Bonn recorded its 16th (16-2) victory of the season and is trailing only leaders Alba Berlin (16-1), with three more wins than Andrea Trinchieri’s team (13-5).

Leon Kratzer followed him with 16 points, while Finn Delaney and experienced Karsten Tadda added 10 points each.

Isaac Bonga had a brilliant game with 28 points and nine rebounds for a PIR of 35, but it wasn’t enough for the Bavarians, as the German national team player was the only one in double-digits.
