In the next match of the championship of the United League VTB Kazan UNICS on his site beat Saratov's "Avtodor" in the hardest fight with a score of 89:82.
 
The hosts started the match in this starting five: Melvin Ejim, Qino Colom, Stephane Lasme, Jamar Smith and Trent Lockett. And the rivals started the match  seriously, both teams defended well. Only 7: 7 in the middle of the first quarter. By that time, UNICS's coaching staff had strengthened the position of the "big one" by releasing Grigory Shukhovtsov against Artem Klimenko. The balance is preserved, 10:10, 12:12, an equal game. But after the three-point of Erwin Morrice and Clark's steal, the hosts had to urgently take a time-out, 12:19 for 2-24 before the first break. Immediately Vladislav Trushkin joined the game. After them came on the flooring Danilo Andjusic and Anton Ponkrashov. A quarter in the end remained behind the guests, after throwing Justin Robinson with a siren, the account became 17:22.
At the beginning of the second period, his first points for UNICS from the spring in the official match scored Andjusic, got from beyond the arc, 23:27. But the account is still led by the Saratov team, they are equally good at getting attacks from the perimeter and from under the ring, 25:31 from Clark's hands. Too often the hosts throw inaccurately. And Maxim Sheleketo from behind the arc brings the advantage of "Avtodor" to 9 points, 31:40. UNICS also attacks with a low percentage of implementation. And yet in the last second of the first half Lockett adding the ball into the net, made the score 40:42. The whole struggle is yet to come.
 
And right after the beginning of the third quarter Colom finally restored the status quo, 42:42. But Clark with a long throw again led the Saratov team forward, 43:45. Shukhovtsov finishes the game with the fifth foul for 5-15 before the last break. Gradually UNICS intercepts the initiative, Smith is accurate from behind the arc, 59:53. But Clark is uncontrollable, on his account already 21 points, 59:57. Very timely three-pointer scores Ponkrashov, 62:57. The shootout was to the end of the quarter, the last one was from afar Clark, 67: 63.
 
And the fourth quarter began with Clark, 67:65. Andjusic and Ponkrashov bring the hosts' advantage to 5 points, 71:65. But three (!) Successively long hits Mike Downs and ahead of the guests, 73:74 for 5-40 to the end. Lasme scores from under the ring, but Ejim gets the fifth foul for 3-42 to the end. Not a game, but a thriller. Technical foul gets Dimitris Priftis, 78:79. Exchange of "threes" - 83:82! Clarke gets unsportsmanlike foul for 0-40, and Lasme scored with a foul, 87:82. The most difficult victory, so after all with "Avtodor" is always difficult.
