The quarters scores were as follows: 20-17 (Al Hala), 19-10 (Al Hala), 21-13 (Nuwaidrat), 19-13 (Nuwaidrat).

Fans in the hall had expected that Al Hala will win the game after they led 39-27 going into the half-time, thanks to excellent performance by their American professional star Loren Woods who took care of the rebounds along with teammates Hassan Gerashi and Ahmed Jamal who both set some fine three-point shots. However, Nuwaidrat came back too hot in both third and fourth quarters, thanks to the great reading and notes by team's Serbian coach Dragan Vascanin who set a fine defensive tactics which stopped Al Hala key players.

Nuwaidrat now qualified for the final of the most precious cup Khalifa bin Salman Basketball Cup Championship, and will take on Muharraq in a match scheduled for February 2 at the Khalifa Sports City Hall. In the press conference, Nuwaidrat coach Dragan Vascanin said that qualify for the final of this tournament came after a hard team work of all players and members of technical and administration team. He noted that winning such a precious cup title will be like a dream come true, specially that it will be the first title ever for Nuwaidrat's history in men's basketball.
