The four in a row for Boulogne-Levallois. Indeed, for their fourth game of the season, the Metropolitans dominated Limoges (82-76) and remain unbeaten at the Palais des Sports Marcel Cerdan, during the 6th day of Jeep Elite. Very interesting since the start of the season, Jurij Zdovc’s players have not disappointed in their hall. A good start in the first quarter (20-12), Boulogne-Levallois was logically ahead at the break (40-32), after notably a peak at +11. Abused, the CSP was still able to react after the break with a third offensive quarter finally to their advantage (20-27). After even passing in front at one point, the visitors were only a step behind before attacking the last ten minutes. But, the awakening of Limoges ended up being stopped by the Metropolitans.

Under pressure, the locals moved forward to regain their distance and have a nine-point lead with less than four minutes from the end. However, two three-point shots in quick succession from Nicolas Lang and Philip Scrubb revived the debate late in the game. But, back to a length, the visitors have again cracked due in particular to an untenable Tomer Ginat and a saving counter from Maxime Roos. Indeed, with 23 points (8 out of 14 on shots) and 3 rebounds, the strong Israeli winger was decisive in the 4th success of his team, while Anthony Brown, Vitalis Chikoko and Rob Gray also exceeded ten units. . With this four out of four, the Metropolitans are tied with Dijon at the head of the Jeep Elite. Opposite, DeMarcus Nelson, Jerry Boutsiele, as well as Lang and Scrubb, more than ten points away, could not prevent the defeat of Limoges (8th), which now has an appointment with Pau-Lacq-Orthez.
