SPM Shoeters Den Bosch moved to 2-0 in Group A of EuroChallenge after they pulled away from the Antwerp Giants in the final minutes of an 83-76 victory.

The game stayed close for three quarters before Den Bosch took a lead, blew it, and then built another more decisive advantage in a thrilling final stanza.

Den Bosch made their first move as they scored the first six points of the fourth quarter to go 67-58 ahead on Stefan Wessels' three-pointer.

But just as quickly the Giants were level as Barry Stewart hit threes either side of another from Maxime De Zeeuw and Roel Moors' lay-up in an 11-2 run to make it 69-69 with 5:49 to play.

Den Bosch's answer was to score 12 more unanswered points, with the run including back-to-back threes from Kees Akerboom and Anthony Johnson, putting them up 81-69 with 1:48 to go.

Antwerp hinted at another rally, Jean-Marc Mwema's three making it 81-74 with 49 seconds left, but time ran out on them.

Tai Wesley led Den Bosch with 31 points while David Gonzalvez had 15 and Johnson 11.
