Orthez, being urged on by their new coach Laurent Vila, held them to just four points the rest of the way and lost by just six with Jean-Frederic Morency hitting a three-pointer two seconds from the end.

Roared on by their home crowd, the Dragons opened up a 49-30 half-time advantage.

Orthez pulled to within 70-57 late in the third on a three-pointer by Florian Lesca, but David Holston replied in kind to stretch the Dragons lead back to 16.

Chinemelu Elonu led Orthez, who fell to 0-3, with 19 points.
