With the game on the line and Monaco being just two points up (101-99) after a three by James Palmer junior, JL Bourg proved to be more than dangerous.

However, the hosts ended the night with a 4-0 run in the closing 26 seconds with Elie Okobo stealing the ball from Isiaha Mike and John Brown sealing the deal with a dunk while getting fouled.

Okobo also scored 21 points, Mike James added 19 and Alpha Diallo had 16, as Monaco jumped to a 2-0 lead in the French League semifinals.

Palmer with 21 points and Jordan Floyd with 20 were the top scorers of feisty Bourg which lost for the second time.

On the other semifinal couple, Victor Wembanyama is leading Metropolitans 92 to a 2-0 advantage over defending champions LDLC ASVEL, the team owner by French icon Tony Parker.
