Le Mans has led for all forty minutes of the game, surviving Monaco’s comeback effort and recording an 87-77 win in Game 2 of ProA League Finals. The best-of-three series is now tied at 1-1.

Although Monaco trailed for the entirety of the match and by as much as a 12-point margin (44-32, second quarter) they had a chance to take over the lead near the finish but were unsuccessful. They were down by one (71-70) but after failing to score, Le Mans took over and with an 8-0 run created enough space to close the game safely.

Mykal Riley led the victors with game-high 21 points while Justin Cobbs helped with 18 in addition to Youssoupha Fall’s 16 points. On the other side, Elmedin Kikanovic held his team in the game with 19 points while Paul Lacombe added 16.

Game 3 of the series is scheduled for Monday 18th of June as the home-court advantage shifts to Le Mans.
