Australia won another pulsating encounter 16-15 at Melbourne's Etihad Stadium on Saturday morning.
Leigh Halfpenny had a chance with the last kick of the game to clinch the Test and Series for the Lions but his effort from 50 metres fell just short.
The teams will now meet for the Series decider in Sydney next Saturday, July 6 at 11am.
Sam, a Spurs fan since the age of six, departed the action on 66 minutes with an injury after a fine display.
He said afterwards: "We're all disappointed with what happened but we can still achieve our dream. The Series is still alive."
