In the third quarter, the team of Piero Bucchi were up by 7 (60-53) until Marco Belinelli took over. The Italian guard helped his team get back into contention (68-68).

Virtus managed to secure a 4-point edge (85-81) but the game went to overtime. Milos Teodosic made it 102-98 for the hosts before Devecchi and Logan missed consecutive threes that could have changed the game's fate.
