Austin Daye scored a game-high 22 points, including the go-ahead basket and grabbed seven rebounds as Reyer Venezia beat Dinamo Sassari 76 – 73 in Game 3 of the Italian League Finals.
Venezia reclaimed homecourt advantage after a 66-80 defeat in Game 2 and is now leading 2-1 in the best-of-seven series.
