Unics Kazan visited Nizhny Novgorod and escaped with a 112-98 win in a very spectacular game!

Quino Colom led the winners with a double-double of 26 points and 15 assists, his own personal best, while Coty Clarke finished the game with 21 points. A nearly perfect Latavius Williams stopped at 20 points, while Keith Langford added 17 and big man Artsiom Parakhouski scored 16.

Tomislav Zubcic led the hosts with 22 points and 4 assists, Deandre Kane followed with 17.

While the hosts were leading in the beginning of the game (25-23 at 10′), the fast paced game turned more into Unics’ favor and so the visitors kept a short lead in the second quarter, going to the lockers at 50-47.

Pashutin’s team put on impressive effort in the third quarter, scoring 37 points, yet they allowed Nizhny to also score more. Still, they kept a brief lead after 30 minutes, 76-87.
