The match will have no significance on the table, as Riyadi secured top spot and with it home court advantage throughout the final stages. They enter the match with a two-game lead over Sagesse.For Riyadi, claiming top spot without defeating Sagesse in the league this season will leave a bitter taste.Having said that, Riyadi usually cause matchup problems for Sagesse, namely on the guard positions, especially if Sagesse's defense remains soft as it has done in recently.In the first encounter, Sagesse caused a big surprise by taking a 23-point win, and in the ensuing meeting, the match almost refused to end after two buzzer-beaters from Sagesse that forced double overtime before Riyadi ultimately prevailed.
