The American guard is once more his team’s… “man of the hour”

Lokomotiv Kuban (11-5) was not consistent enough for 40 minutes against Astana (6-11), transforming what initially appeared to be an easy game, into a thriller. And in the end, the team from Krasnodar called for the powers of its MVP this season, Malcolm Delaney who pulled the big jump shot to avoid what the overtime would have brought. Astana gave a great fight in the second half, with a fantastic Nick Caner Medley (28 p. 9 r.) but lost in the details.

Don’t rub your eyes watching the score between Vita (0-18) and Khimki (14-5). Yes, it is a double score, plus since one of the strongest teams in the league played with the weakest and last in the standings. The Russians completely overpowered their opponents with newcomer Jason Boone showing why he arrived in the team and Egor Vyaltsev (20 p. 7 a. ) having one of his best games in the season.
