GAME REPORT

18.01.2005
Azovmash 90 vs. SAOS JDA Dijon 66

Dijon faded after a strong start to drop their road game in Ukraine against domestic champs Azovmash Mariupol.

The French side connected on 6/7 three-pointers in the opening period, amassing 30 points in 10 minutes and causing Mariupol all sorts of problems.

It was Azovmash center Art Long who rescued what was threatening to become an early rout. Long has made a huge impact for the side since joining in November, and his 13 rpg leads all players in the competition. But it was his shooting that got Azovmash back on track, as he nailed his first 2 threes of the season at the end of the quarter, to bring his team back to within 7 points, 23-30.

If Dijon were red hot from long range in the first 10 minutes, Azovmash were white hot in the second quarter. They hit 7 three-pointers of their own in the period (including two each from Lior Lubin and Arnas Kazlauskas) to outscore Dijon 33-12 and take an iron grip on the game.

The halftime break offered no respite for the French visitors and try as they might, they could not make a dent in Azovmash's ever increasing advantage.

Kazlauskas finished with 22 points for Azovmash while Long added 18 and 12 rebounds. Azovmash move into 3rd place in Group B, while Dijon remain in fourth, good enough for a play-off berth.

COACH QUOTES

Quotes Azovmash vs. SAOS JDA Dijon

Nicolas Faure, Head Coach Dijon:

"I think we were outplayed in every component of the game tonight. Only 3 team assists might be the new worst record in the FIBA Europe League. Seriously speaking, "Azovmash" showed the game they wanted to play physically and tactically. As we tried to catch up they made the necessary adjustments and pressed us again."

Rowan Barrett, Dijon:

"Azovmash is a pretty physical team and they are definitely improving from game to game."


Rimas Girskis, Head Coach Azovmash:

"Tonight we had two tasks that were set for us. The first one was to win and the second was to win by more than 17 points. We accomplished both of them. And afterwards we accomplished even the third task - we played good basketball."
