Only one series needed a deciding game and it was played on Friday. With both teams knowing that their season would be over with a loss, proceedings got quite tense in the final frame, resulting in overtime. Napoli was just able to grind out the 55-51 win on their home court, ending Lucca’s chances to defend their title.
