The second quarter began with a 0-4 lead and PAOK mateco created a 16-point outcome (13-29). The hosts tried to recover in the game and at some point they did (20-29), but Hands came up with a plan and created a double-digit difference (20-32), with a «goal- foul». Apollon made a big effort so they could turn the tide, while they reduced at 5 points (29-34) in the middle of the second quarter. Nate Renfro was our guardian angel and was the absolute dominant in both of baskets, so just like that PAOK mateco ended the halftime with a double-digit difference (34-45).

In the third period, the game had the same rhythm. The hosts made another try to reduce the difference, but PAOK mateco had a solution and preserved the double-digit difference (48-59 25’), while Franke extended to 14p. (49-63 26’). Our team made an impressive ending in the third quarter by even leading with 21 points (49-70) and got into the final stage with a 16-point lead (56-72).

Apollon made a final try to change the score but PAOK mateco had already the answers with the three-pointers: Riley, Sibert, Franke, which they helped our team to extend the difference to 20 points (63-83 34’30’’). After that, the game acquired a procedural meaning.
