In the classic between Mogi and Flamengo, two of my favorite NBB title teams, the National Basketball League, the Sao Paulo team's win. Last year's semifinalists defeated current champions 75-74 and reached five victories in seven games, staying fifth. Flamengo lost the chance to take the lead and now, with six wins and two defeats, continues the second.
Flamengo dominated the first two quarters, but saw Moggy grow in the third period. Four minutes passed, the red-blacks took the lead, but saw their rivals continue to score in the final minute. Flamengo had a chance to win with 12 seconds to go, but Markinhos and Leo Demitrio missed the chance under the basket.
