Both teams were 2-1 up to Tuesday’s contest, but Nizhny Novgorod separated itself from Peristeri winmasters with a 74-71 win at the Arena of GS Peristeri.

Defense did not allow the home team get in the paint. Brandon Brown went for a game-high 21 points on the other end ensuring the “W” in Tuesday’s Basketball Champions League Regular Season Gameday 4 tilt.

Alec Brown contributed to the victory with 14 points and Chavaughn Lewis followed with 11 at Peristeri.

Double-digits were there twice for the Russian club that never trailed, but still needed Will Hatcher to miss a three at the buzzer to improve to 3-1 in Group C.

Scoochie Smith went for 21 points in losing effort. Steven Gray finished with 11 points, while Moses Kingsley also put up 11 and grabbed nine rebounds, but Ilias Zouros’ club fell to 2-2.
