 Ilian Evtimov made four of six shots from behind the three-point arc in clutch time

Elan Chalon took a long time to warm up but once they did, there was no stopping them.

Coming off last week's narrow defeat at Telekom Baskets in Germany, Chalon outscored Okapi Aalstar 31-13 in the fourth quarter on Tuesday night and won the EuroChallenge Last 16 Group J clash, 87-72.

Chalon improved to 2-1 with the victory.

One of the top marksman in the competition, Ilian Evtimov, drilled four of six shots from the arc for Chalon and finished with 18 points.

All four of his three-pointers came in the fourth quarter, including one that put the French team in front to stay at 61-59.

Evtimov has now made 32 of 62 (51.6%) shots from long range in the competition this season.

He has buried 11 of his last 13 attempts, including his perfect seven of seven night at Telekom Baskets that did not net his team a win.

Christopher Young had 20 points and 13 rebound for Okapi, who are now 1-2.
