Bamberg won its eighth domestic title overall and its sixth in seven seasons this decade, including every year except 2014. Ulm held a 38-41 lead on baskets by Chris Babb and Raymar Morgan right after halftime. Bamberg then blasted off on a 23-3 run over 5 minutes to break the game open at 61-44 as Darius Miller, Patrick Heckmann, Janis Strelnieks and Daniel Theis shared 5 three-pointers. Brad Wanamaker had 4 more points in that run and joined Miller as the team's scoring leader with 19 points each.
