Both series continued on Tuesday. Charleville started the second half looking like a team trying to stay in contention, but Lyon roared back in the fourth quarter to win 73-68 and complete the sweep. Having already won on the road, Lattes Montpellier just needed to complete the task at home against their old rivals Bourges, doing enough in the second half to win 71-64. While the winners prepare for the finals, the two losers still have the French Cup to contest before their seasons are over.
