Omar Thomas had 16 points in Krasnye Krylia's fourth straight win

Krasnye Krylia kept up their perfect record at the top of Group B in the EuroChallenge as they cruised to an 82-51 win over Keravnos Strovolou on the road.

Keravnos began brightly as they aimed to pull off the upset, but they could not keep it going much beyond the first quarter before Krasnye's quality began to show.

Nikita Balashov led Krasnye with 18 points and Omar Thomas added 16, with Aaron Miles and Chester Simmons each collecting 10.

But they gave themselves work to do after Kervanos started strong, pulling 15-4 ahead on a Bobby Maze driving lay-up.

But back-to-back threes from Miles and Jeremiah Massey were followed by back-to-back dunks from Balashov as Krasnye came storming back.

It took them until early in the second quarter to level it at 22, but once they had their noses in front they did not look back, and a 12-2 run early in the third had them up 46-33 when Balashov slammed home Miles' alley-oop pass.

Nine unanswered points stretched the lead to 57-37 late in the third quarter and they only continued to pile it on in the fourth, scoring the final 10 points of the game as they refused to show Keravnos any mercy.

Lawrence Kinnard led Keravnos with 11 points while Julian Vaughn had 10.
