After getting the upper hand in Greece with the 73-66 win on the road, Telekom Baskets Bonn won once again against AEK in front of its audience 80-72.

TJ Shorts II, who recently debuted with North Macedonia in the FIBA EuroBasket 2025 Qualifiers Window, wrote history with another incredible game.

Bonn’s point guard became the first player in Basketball Champions League history to score at least 25 points in four consecutive games, as he ended the game with 27 against the black-and-yellow team.

Finn Delaney and Jeremy Morgan helped him by adding 11 points a piece.

Janis Strelnieks had 17 points and was the best player on the losing side, just like when he scored 20 at home on Gameday 3.

The leader of the Greek team Tim Frazier had a pretty good game with 16 points, 5 rebounds, and 5 assists.

For the first time ever, Bonn has won three consecutive games in the BCL. At the same time, AEK lost the eighth game out of the latest nine away appearances in the competition.

With this victory, the German team goes on top of Group B with a 3-1 record. AEK stays at the bottom with 1-3, while Reggio Emilia and Pinar Karsiyaka are currently 2-2 after the Italian team’s victory.
