The championship series started on Wednesday as two longtime foes faced off with Bourges hosting Lattes Montpellier. The first quarter was high-scoring, but the game eventually devolved into the more expected grind as it progressed, culminating in an exceptionally low-scoring finish. The hosts came out on top 54-49 as they only need to win once on the road on either Friday or Sunday to defend their crown.
