Basketball Bundesliga: Christian Held praises the atmosphere in Berlin: "It was amazing"

Despite the clear 79:104 (46:51) defeat at defending champion Alba Berlin on Sunday, the Rostock Seawolves left many positive impressions. In view of the 12,117 spectators in the Berlin Arena, including around 1,500 Seawolves fans, head coach Christian Held stated: "The atmosphere in the hall was amazing and a great joy. It was a huge experience for all the fans who were there and for us supported all season."

The 34-year-old also said: "It was also a huge step for the organization, which has continued to develop over the past few years. Those were a bit of the laurels we reaped."

However, Held seemed a little to mourn his team's missed chance of crowning their performance with a surprise. Because after a long, almost balanced first half, the Berliners only had a decisive advantage with an 11:2 run in the first three minutes of the second round. "Once that happens, it's difficult to come back," said Held, looking at the course of the game and adding: "It's a bit of a shame for us because we did a lot of things right."

For the Mecklenburgers, who have also been mathematically certain of staying up in the league since last week, the next game with a top BBL team is already on Wednesday. The climber's journey then leads to FC Bayern Munich. The game with the German Cup Winner starts at 7 p.m.
