Monaco takes the lead. The Roca Team won by a short header in match 3 of the Betclic Elite final (83-80), in its Gaston-Médecin room, Monday June 20, 2022. Three days after the slap suffered at the Astroballe , the Monegasques are reassured and take the lead in the best-of-five series.

Asvel had a better start to the game, but were weighed down by their lack of three-point success (0/10 at the break). And it was the Monaco team that came out on top in the locker room (39-33), carried by its good American pair Mike James-Dwayne Bacon. Sasa Obradovic’s men missed the third quarter, against a great night Elie Okobo (25 points, 3 rebounds), but managed to get out of a tense end of the game to clinch a capital victory.

“It was a good game for me, but the most important thing is the team’s result”entrusted Mike James to the microphone of BeIN Sports after the final whistle. “We really wanted to win this game.” Thanks to this success, Monaco takes a very good option before match 4, which can already be decisive. In the event of another victory on Wednesday June 22, the Monegasques would win the first title in their history.
