Seulement les dix premières minutes Pau était capable de faire face à Anaïs Déas et co-équipières pour être menée par 2 petits points (17-19).
Mais après c'était la show des Niss'Angels qui s'inspiraient de Fabienne Constant et de Alexandra Tchangue.
L'écart se creusait de plus en plus, à mi-temps (40-26) et à la fin de la rencontre Nice gagnait facilement (78-55) pour se laisser congratuler par ses fans pour une nouvelle fois d'être dans la finale dans une Final Four en LF2.
