GAME REPORT


Amsterdam Crush Samara, Set Up Decisive Dexia Clash

EclipseJet MyGuide Amsterdam hammered CSK-VVS Samara to set up a do-or-die clash with Dexia Mons-Hainaut next week between sides trying to advance to the EuroChallenge Quarter-Finals.

Orien Greene erupted for a game-high 27 points for the Dutch outfit, who improved to 3-2 in Group L, the same record as Dexia after they BC Triumph.

Defeat for Samara meant they finished 0-6 in the pool.

Arie Shivek's Amsterdam only led 44-40 more than three minutes into the second half but then blew the game wide open.

Avis Wyatt tipped in a Peter van Paassen miss and Teddy Gipson followed with a lay-up and a jump shot at the start of an 11-1 surge.

By the end of the quarter, the Amsterdammers had a 69-54 lead and in the final frame they went in front by as many as 23 before cruising to victory.

Amsterdam hit nine of 20 (45%) from long range with Greene four of seven (57.1%).

Gennady Zelenskiy finished with 21 points for Samara.

COACH QUOTES


Quotes EclipseJet MyGuide vs. CSK-VVS

Arik Shivek, EclipseJet Amsterdam Coach:

"A big compliment for our defense. Samara is a team who usually shoot really well. In the Russian competition they are a difficult opponent for the top teams. That their shooters couldn't make that many shots was a great achivement. Samara almost didn't have any chances from the three-point line." 

Peter van Paassen, EclipseJet Amsterdam Player:

"Our goal in Mons is clear: we have to win. We have played in big stadiums against great opponents. So I have confidence."

Vladislav Konovalov, Samara Assistant Coach:

"We started strong but lost concentration. Amsterdam made a difference in the third quarter. Greene was amazing today, I think he is an amazing player."

Gannadi Zelenskiy, Samara Player:

"Amsterdam was good today. Although we couldn't win anything in the group we still wanted to win this game."
