Flamengo, in turn, is the second with the most titles, having eight cups (seven in the NBB). Rubro-Negro won the last two editions of the tournament. To take the tri, you have to get the better of three of the next four games of the decisive series.

Franca’s efficiency made the difference in the first half of the match. The Paulistas led the score most of the time, being behind only between minutes two and three of the second period, when Flamengo went ahead by two points. The hosts were more accurate on shots, especially from two points, with 64% hits in 14 attempts. In 23 balls, the Cariocas had only 47% of success. No wonder, the home team went to halftime winning by 41 to 32.

The third period was the most disputed of the match, with Franca opening 14 points and Flamengo looking for a tie with one minute of the end of the partial, led by Martínez’s three-pointers. In the final seconds, the Paulistas fitted two counterattacks and regained control of the game. The Cariocas won the fourth by 26 to 24, but little impacting the hosts’ advantage, still at seven points.

The final ten minutes were completely dominated by Franca, with an efficiency that reached almost 70% in three-pointers (finished at 50%). The Paulistas opened 16 points ahead, the Cariocas reacted and shortened the difference to six points, but the victory was really with the hosts, for the fans to celebrate at Pedrocão.
