Despite the clear defeat against the Niners Chemnitz, Johnathan Stove has thrown himself into the history books of Syntainics MBC. With 41 points, the American set a club record in the basketball Bundesliga club’s first division history, which spanned almost 18 years. Quinton Hooker set the previous record with 37 points in April 2021 in a win in Frankfurt.

In the end, Chemnitz clearly won 111:95 in the sold-out Wei├čenfelser Stadthalle in front of 3,000 fans and celebrated its 21st win of the season. Manager Steffen Herold spoke on Deutschlandfunk about the reasons for the success. “We’re rolling this season. The team has come together extremely well, early in the season. These are guys who are highly competitive, they want to go all the way,” said the official. Chemnitz is also on the verge of reaching the final of the Europe Cup and won the semi-final first leg in Bilbao 98:73.

At the MBC, Chemnitz initially fell behind 3:7, but turned it into a 19:7 lead with a 16:0 run. By the middle of the second quarter the lead had grown to 44:21, which actually meant the game was over. But the MBC came within two points at the break before the guests’ class prevailed in the second half.
