Omar Tomas (20 p., 13 r., 6 as.), Ryan Toolson (14 p.) and Kaspars Berzings (10 p.)  finished the game the right way and Zenit St. Petersburg got the big 85-84 win over Unics Kazan and tied the United league semifinal series at 2-2.

The hosts entered the last minute with a 85-79 lead, Keith Langford made it a three points game with 5 seconds left (85-82) and Quino Colom lost the chance in the buzzer to send the game in overtime. Unics had the advantage in the third quarter, but Zenit came back into the game in the last period and got the win.

Colom scored 26 points, Langford had 22 and now the winner of the series will not get only the ticket to VTB finals, but also a ticket to next season’s Euroleague. CSKA Moscow which has an A License in Euroleague has already qualified to the finals, so the other finalist will get the spot reserved for VTB for the 2016-17 Euroleague.
