Lokomotiv looked to have matters in hand as they led 87-82 with 1:39 to go, but Petr Gubanov tipped in from Dmitriy Khvostov's miss and Vasily Zavourev then nailed a three-pointer to tie it up 52 seconds from time.

Michael Wilkinson missed for Lokomotiv while Khvostov was also off target before he fouled Lionel Chalmers.

Chalmers missed his first shot from the free throw line, but edged Lokomotiv ahead 88-87 with 16 seconds to go as he made the second.

Zhukanenko drew a foul and hit both shots to give Dynamo the lead 89-88 seconds later, but there was a final twist as Zhukanenko then fouled Wilkinson, who made no mistake to give Lokomotiv the win.

The final two points took Wilkinson's tally to a team-high 19, while Chalmers added 14 and Tucker and Jeremiah Massey had 13 each.

Nikita Shabalkin led Dynamo with 24 points but was sorely missed in the final stages after fouling out.

Zhukanenko finished with 23 points.
