GAME REPORT


Khimik 63 vs. UNICS 70

After a rocky start to the season, UNICKS Kazan seem to have rediscovered the kind of form that took them all the way to the FIBA Europe League title in 2004.

Kazan went to Khimik in game one of their three game FIBA Europe League play-off series and stole the homecourt advantage with a 63-70 victory.

It took the Russian side 20 minutes to find their feet, but a 22-5 third quarter run saw them turn a 5-point deficit into a 12-point advantage going into the fourth quarter.

The third period was a cruel blow for the home side, who guided by the hot hand of Oleg Yushkin, led comfortably after 20 minutes. But the third quarter proved disastrous as Khimik's shooting touch deserted them and Kazan stretched further ahead.

Khimik managed to reduce Kazan's lead to 4 points in the final quarter, but the visitors' strength, depth and experience was enough to see them hang on for victory.

Shammond Williams led the way for Kazan, tallying 17 points and 7 assists in the win.

Yushkin top scored for Khimik with 13 points.
