Bracey Wright and Julian Wright each poured in 24 points for Krasnye Krylia
Krasnye Krylia's two Wrights could do no wrong as they poured in 24 points each in an 89-74 victory over CSM Oradea as they got off the mark in Group B of EuroChallenge.
Krasnye began to pull away in the second quarter as back-to-back baskets from Julian Wright pushed them into a 38-31 lead before Demetris Nichols' lay-up padded it further.
After Nichols hit a three to start the second half,
followed it with a lay-up and the lead had quickly bulged to 50-39.
After Bracey Wright hit a three and Artem Zabelin added a short jumper, Oradea found themselves trailing by 15 and apparently unable to reverse the tide.
Julian Wright, who had nine boards along with his points haul, remained at the heart of everything Krasnye were doing and the American scored six quick points to make it 66-49 before Oradea hit seven unanswered to limit the damage at the end of the third period.
That proved the start of a concerted rally from the hosts as Radovan Markovic opened the fourth quarter with a three-pointer before Sean Denison followed it with a jump shot that made it 67-61.
It took both the Wrights and Nichols to end it, as Bracey Wright and Nichols hit threes either side of a Julian Wright dunk, quickly increasing the lead to 77-65, and this time Oradea had no answer.
Nichols finished with 17 points for Krasnye with Aaron Miles adding 10 and eight assists.
Denison had 20 points for Oradea with Markovic adding 15 and Titus Nicoara 14.
