The Wrights once again teamed up to lead Krasnye Krylia to victory as they routed Atomeromu Paks 89-56 to improve to 2-1 in Group B of the EuroChallenge.

Julian and Bracey Wright had 17 points apiece to lead five Samara players scoring in double figures on a night where they faced desperately little resistance.

Krasnye Krylia never trailed in a game they dominated throughout, outscoring their hosts 30-6 in a thoroughly lop-sided second quarter which ensured it was over as a contest before the half-time buzzer.

They finished that period with 23 unanswered points, taking a 55-22 lead on Bracey Wright's lay-up, as they totally overran Atomeromu with the scoring coming from all angles.

The final margin might have been more were it not for a fourth quarter in which they finally benched the starters, allowing the hosts to chip away slightly at the deficit, even if it was no more than damage limitation.

That came after Krasnye Krylia took their biggest lead of the night, 84-42, on a Julian Wright dunk.

Anton Ponkrashov added 16 points, Artem Zabelin had 14 and Demetris Nichols 10.

Zsolt Szabo and Rodney McGruder led the hosts with 12 points each.
