The former Germani Brescia player who can play as a Small Forward converted all three free throw attempts and converted three of four field goal attempts. His efficient shooting performance was slightly undone by missing a pair of three point shot attempts.

Veterans Marco Belinelli and Milos Teodosic led the way scoring 16 points apiece while Giampaolo Ricci registered a 15 points, 11 rebounds double double.

Game 3 is on June 2; Abass won the league title in 2018 during his time at Olimpia Milano.
