The French, playing without injured duo Yannick Bokolo and Mo Sene, closed the gap to 52-39 with 6:46 to go in the third quarter.

Lokomotiv then delivered the knockout punch.

A Massey three-ball ignited an 8-0 that was capped by Alexey Surovtsev's shot from the arc for a 60-39 lead with 5:43 to play in the third frame.

The advantage ballooned to 28 in the third quarter before Lokomotiv settled for an 18-point triumph.
