Lugano, who led 41-37 at half-time, had Stevic (17 points), Polite (16 points) and Matthews (18 points) to thank for their victory.

Olympique, for whom Gosa bagged 22 points, regained some of the pride lost when they were hammered 58-99 in the opening game of the series.

But they now have it all to do in the remaining games if they are to deny the defending champions another title.
