The first of the championship series was played in Orenburg on Wednesday. Nadezhda was in the middle of a four game in seven day stretch as they chased trophies on multiple fronts. Lattes Montpellier had the better start and then maintained their lead to win 75-71, which will leave them in advantageous position when they host the last game in a week, but they will be wary of the threat posed by a team that should be better rested for the game that will determine the champion.
