In the second the visitors took control of the game, leading the game by 11 points. But the hosts fought themseves back into the game trailing by 8 at the half. (30-38).

Tel Aviv tried to find their luck with a hard defensive performance, but always came up short to regain the lead from the Russians. In the end free throws decided the game, as Perm was steady from the line and brought home a crucial away victory in Israel with the final score 71-76.

With this victory the team from Perm even regains the top spot in Group A from the Germans.

MVP: Jasmin Hukic (Hapoel Tel Aviv) scoring 18 points.
