This match for UNICS was the key match in the Top 16 of the European Cup - the defeat could put an end to the plans of the Kazan players to play in the playoffs, the victory  could give a good chance to continue the struggle for the European Cup. Kazan won and got their chance. Before the last round, three teams of the "H" group had 3 wins and 2 losses, but in ASVEL, the goal difference is +44, "Reggio Emilia" +23, UNICS - 0. Let's explain that the points scored in overtime are not taken into account. February 6, "Reggio Emilia" will take home ASVEL, February 7 UNICS will play at home with "We can." One of the first three teams will definitely lose and will not get into the playoffs ...

The guests started on this unusual evening: Melvin Ejim, Qino Colom, Stephane Lasme, Trenton Lockett and Evgeny Kolesnikov. The started calmly, with the exact shot of Colom and dunk of Ejim. After the "three" of Coloma guests are still ahead, 8: 9. It is regrettable to realize this, but more than five minutes ago, Kazanians could not get more points in the start-up period. But the French have used their chance, gaining 9 points for this time, so they went to the first break of the team with the score 17: 9. The substitution Maurice Ndur, Anton Ponkrashov and Danilo Andjusic.

During the break, the coaching staff of UNICS made the appropriate conclusions, the Kazanians played much more productive and calmer. 17:14 after the middle shot of Andjusic and Smith's long-range hit. Not without the help of referees, the hosts again go forward 9 points, 23: 14 4 minutes after the start of the quarter. The first three free- throwa in the match the guests punched only at the end of the first half! But UNICS still caught his game. For 1-21 before the big break in the proprietary pass under the ring with a foul Colom is finally comparing the score and leading the guests forward, 24:25. So the teams finished the first half with a scanty advantage of UNICS, 28:29. 

The third and the fourth quarter passed in such a tense, extremely nervous struggle, that it was better for women and children not to look at the court. It is enough to say that in the third quarter both teams scribbled each other 23 points, in the fourth the hosts scored one point more than guests. And yet, this evening was the day of Smith and not the day of Lasme, the latter was not like himself, missing all 10 shots off the game! Smith supported the comrade, scoring from any distance, including 4 of the 6 accurate long-range shots of the team.  For the most part, the score was equal to or plus 1-2 in someone's favor. But in the end, luck was on the side of UNICS, Vladislav Trushkin and Ponkrashov again brought the Kazan forward, 51:52.

In the debut of the fourth quarter Smith scored, 51:54 and for four minutes the guests "fell silent", not having scored a single point, 61:54. To the credit of the Kazan, they quickly came to their senses and struck ASVEL a retaliatory strike, 61:60 from Ponkrashov's hands for 3-40 to the end. 

In an additional five-minute visit, guests dominated, and the hosts constantly overtook. Colom, 69:71, Lockett scored from behind the arc, 71:74 for 3-03 to the end, but the captain of ASVEL Charles Kahudi is just as accurate from afar, 74:74. Colom from the free-throw line, 74:76. Smith did not score from behind the arc but Ejim managed to rebound and added, 74:80. It was a decisive throw. Yes, Roberson 46 seconds before the end came from a distance, 77:80, but this was the last success of the French this evening. Did not help the hosts and tactical fouls, the guests accurately realized the free throws, having obtained such an important victory. Now to get into the playoffs UNICS needs to beat at home "Limoges" in the last round with any score .

ASVEL (Villeurbanne, France) - UNICS (Kazan, Russia) - 77:83 (17: 9, 11:20, 23:23, 18:17, 8:14). The most productive: ASVEL - Roberson (17), Kahudi (11), Noah (10); UNICS - Colom (20 + 9 rebounds + 7 assists), Smith (26), Ejim (16 + 13 rebounds).
