The regular championship of the United VTB League UNICS has completed in St. Petersburg with a beautiful victory over Zenit.

Guests came to this match in this starting five: Melvin Ejim, Quino Colom, Maurice Ndour, Trenton Lockett and Evgeny Kolesnikov, as in the previous game in Perm. As a result, the debut of the meeting the guests frankly "overslept", 8: 0 after the first 75 seconds. "Zenith", of course, was much more motivated. Such slapping quickly led the citizens out of the stupor, immediately flew long shots, twice Ejim, once Lockett, Kolesnikov from an average distance in two minutes changed the score to 10:11. Substitutions in  UNICS- Anton Ponkrashov,  Jamar Smith, Andrei Koshcheev, Vladislav Trushkin. Only Ejime from the starting lineup played without replacement all the first half! But the ending of the quarter remained for Petrograd, 27:22.

In the first two minutes of the second period, UNICS strikes an impressive blow, 9-0! 27:31 after the throw of Smith. And Zenit quickly recovered from such a blow, responding with his counterblow, 7-0. 42:41. But the three-pointers continue to regularly fly to the target at the guests, 48:51 after Kolesnikov hits. In a word, it is quite logical that the first half was left for UNICS, although the advantage in the account was minimal, 50:51. 

The key quarter was the third quarter, which the guests confidently won, which became the turning point in the game.  Ndour twice successively completes the attacks of UNICS, Smith is accurate from afar. Smith for the first time brought the advantage of the guests to double-digit, 57:68 in the middle of the quarter. Occasionally Petrograders manage to narrow the gap, 61:68, but the guests quickly returned "Zenith" in place. Trushkin scores a three-pointer, 61:71.

The guests also acted confidently in the final 10 minutes, coolly and accurately, scoring as a result 11 long shots. From "minus 10" the owners have never climbed until the end of the meeting. Sometimes the advantage of UNICS reached to 17 points, 78:95. Two minutes before the end Alexander Bille came in the game, who managed to earn his 2 points, which became the last in the match, 82:99.  A beautiful victory for Kazan!

"Zenith" (St. Petersburg) - UNICS (Kazan) - 82:99 (27:22, 23:29, 14:24, 18:24). The most productive: "Zenith" - Karasev (19), Whittington (17), Harper (14), Valiev (11); UNICS - Ejim (16), Smith (14), Colom (11), Ponkrashov (10), Ndour (10), Trushkin (10).
