After all, Estonia is appearing more in scoring again. Kristian Kullamäe and Matthias Tass are in the lead in Jukka Toijala’s team.

28

19:20

Two free throws by Dennis Schröder mean that the cushion of the DDB selection has grown to 24 points.

27

19:19

As the third player in the league, Christian Sengfelder is currently running hot and, after a successful threesome, also hammers a middle-distance shot into the basket. This has made Power Forward the top German scorer for the moment.

26

19:16

Above all, Isaac Bonga, who was noticed in the first part of the game with a good defensive work, is now increasingly moving into the center of attention. Like Dennis Schröder, the 22-year-old also has twelve points on his account.

25

19:14

In the phase, Gordon Herbert’s team has everything under control again. While the hosts have only collected five points since the restart, Germany already have 15 points.

24

19:10

Dennis Schröder is now the first player to score double-digit points. After Johannes Voigtmann, the NBA star also has the second most playing minutes in the German team under his belt.

23

19:07

A quick look at the statistics shows that this game is by no means a treat. Both Germany (28.21%) and Estonia (29.03%) stand out from the field with a hit rate below 30 percent.

22

19:06

Dennis Schröder stages Isaac Bonga, who can show off his athleticism under the basket and marks the first German points after the break.

21

19:05

Let’s continue with the second round of the World Cup qualification in Tallinn! Defensively, Germany has been very solid so far, but the rhythm on the offensive was far from always there.

21

19:04

Beginning of 3rd quarter

20

18:49

Mid-term conclusion:
The first 20 minutes are over and the German national team has gained a 22:31 lead against Estonia! The basis for this result was primarily a strong phase in the middle of the first quarter, when the DDB selection pulled away with a 13-0 run. Nevertheless, not everything is right in Gordon Herbert’s team – especially on the offensive. In the second period, the guests sometimes didn’t score from the field for more than five minutes. There is definitely room for improvement in the second half.

20

18:45

This game is currently at the lowest level. One mistake follows the next on both sides, so the last German point win was quite a while ago.

19

18:42

The Balts are fighting their way back into the single digits! Maik Kotsar is the shooter again and forces national coach Gordon Herbert to take a break.

18

18:40

So far, Isaac Bonga has thrown conspicuously often from a distance, but is not particularly successful. Only two of the 22-year-old’s seven attempts ended up in the basket.

17

18:37

Maik Kotsar recorded a small sense of achievement for the hosts from close range, but Justus Hollatz dampened the mood in the stands in a direct counterattack and hit from downtown.

16

18:33

Estonia sleeps on the defensive! Justus Hollatz throws the ball to the right to Johannes Voigtmann, who is allowed to march to the basket and net easily.

15

18:30

Johannes Voigtmann will definitely be happy about every minute of match practice here. After the start of the Russian war of aggression, his involvement with CSKA Moscow came to an abrupt end. The 29-year-old has not played a game at club level since the end of February.

14

18:29

In reverse, Johannes Voigtmann can distinguish himself with a nice block against Maik Kotsar and be celebrated by the Deutsche Bank.

13.

18:27

Dennis Schröder does it a bit better on the free-throw line than from a distance before. As a result of a foul by Henri Drell, the 28-year-old throws both attempts into the target.

12.

18:25

Germany has lost the rhythm in the offensive again at the moment. In contrast, Estonia is slowly fighting back into the game and once again scores the next point from the free-throw line through Henri Drell.

11.

18:24

A few moments of breather have passed, so the second quarter is now underway! A little later, Dennis Schröder undermined his second air ball in this encounter.

11.

18:23

Beginning of 2nd quarter

10

18:22

Quarter conclusion:
After the German national team had some initial problems in the first few minutes, national coach Gordon Herbert’s team quickly swam free. Above all, Dennis Schröder and Isaac Bonga took over the scepter and ensured a quite comfortable lead after the first ten minutes.

10

18:17

Isaac Bonga steps on Henri Drell’s shoe and twists his ankle slightly. A short moment of shock for the DDB selection, but apparently the 22-year-old will continue for the time being.

9.

18:14

In the early minutes, Estonia is not up to par, especially with rebounds. So far, the German players have been able to develop clear advantages there.

8th.

18:11

A floater by Henri Drell ended a 13-0 run by the German national team. The home side can’t find any means against the game friends of Dennis Schröder and Isaac Bonga.

7.

18:10

It is already becoming apparent at this point that NBA star Dennis Schröder will dictate the pace of this game.

6.

18:09

Strong defensive action! Jonas Wohlfarth-Bottermann climbs up and fends off an actually safe layup by Sten Sokk.

5.

18:08

There is the first lead for the German team! Johannes Voigtmann plays the ball to the left to Dennis Schröder, who hits the curve from the middle distance. Thus, Gordon Herbert’s team did not let themselves be disturbed after the small false start.

4.

18:05

After three missed shots, Isaac Bonga ended his personal negative run and marked the first three points of the DDB selection from afar.

3.

18:04

Isaac Bonga forgives the first German throw from the corner. In return, Kristian Kullamäe from the middle distance made the Estonians’ dream start perfect.

2.

18:03

Good start from the Baltic hosts! Kristian Kullamäe immediately hits a three from the right line into the basket and lets the crowded hall go crazy for the first time.

1.

18:01

The match in Tallinn is on! National coach Gordon Herbert starts with Isaac Bonga, Johannes Voigtmann, Dennis Schröder, Jonas Wohlfarth-Bottermann and Kenneth Ogbe.

17:43

Germany will have to do without regular captain Robin Benzing for the upcoming tasks. “I’ve been on the road with the DBB team every summer for 13 years, so I just need a break. I don’t have the regeneration my body needs now so that I can go full throttle in the EuroBasket preparation,” said the 33 year old recently. Instead, NBA star Dennis Schröder is returning to the national team after a long absence.

17:31

Gordon Herbert’s men have everything in their own hands in the qualifying group. The national team recently celebrated three wins in a row and is now in first place. Only a defeat on the first day of the game – of all things against today’s opponents and real outsiders Estonia – spoils the otherwise flawless record. The DDB selection thus has the best prospects of participating in the 2023 World Cup and can now take revenge on the Balts.

17:22

For the DDB selection, the final two World Cup qualifiers against Estonia and against Poland on Sunday represent the gallop into a hot summer. The long-awaited European Championships at home will start in Cologne and Berlin at the beginning of September. Both the association and national coach Gordon Herbert have already raised expectations and are aiming for a medal. Before that, however, the German basketball players want to secure a ticket for the 2023 tournament in Indonesia, Japan and the Philippines.

17:15

Have a wonderful good evening and welcome to the World Cup qualifiers! The German national basketball team can take a big step towards winning the group against Estonia. Tip-off in Tallinn is at 6 p.m.
