If ever a player was born to thrill, it's BC Khimik's Curtis Millage.

The point guard has been one of the most exciting players in Ukraine, and the EuroChallenge so far this season.

On Tuesday, the left-handed jump-shooter managed to get off a last-second, game-winning three-pointer from several feet beyond the arc against Deutsche Bank Skyliners.

He drilled it for a 61-60 Khimik triumph, which improved their record to 1-1 in Group B.

"I've won may games like that and lost many," Millage said.

"My mentality is that I want the ball at the end.

"I put the pressure on myself if we lose and take the downfall for it.

"But it's a team effort. Everyone went out there and played hard.

"We'd lost a tough game to Budivelnyk a few days ago, we stuck with it, luck was on our side and we won."

Indeed, Budivelnyk had beaten Khimik, 71-69, in their previous domestic league game.

Khimik are hoping the EuroChallenge will spark their season into life.

They are currently 3-14 in Ukraine's top flight.
