In the first home game of the season, Kazan did not give a chance to Avtodor.

Kazan games with Saratov players are not formally derbies, cities are different, but always a battle.

As usual, in the offseason, the composition of Saratov underwent dramatic changes. Six Americans left the team, they were replaced by seven. Two Russians in the offseason left Avtodor straight to  UNICS: Artem Klimenko and Maxim Sheleketo.

The hosts started the game in such a composition, purely of those who are from overseas: Raymar Morgan, Trenton Lockett, Maurice Ndour, Jamar Smith and Pierra Henry. The injured Melvin Ejm, Anton Ponkrashov, and Kostas Kaimakoglou missed the match. Klimenko was the first to substitute, in the middle of the first quarter, when the score was 17: 7. UNICS started very confidently, and after the “three” of Smith and dunk of Ndour, the score was already 22: 8.  Ndour, who managed to score 8 points by that time, replaced Sheleketo. Playing against this squad, the guests were able to make a 6-0 spurt, 22:14 in the first 10 minutes.

At the beginning of the second quarter, Avtodor's jerk stopped at 10-0, until Henry was beaten from the middle distance and Sheleketo from beyond the arc, and behind them, Klimenko, 29:18, scored his first points. But in the middle of the period, the coaching staff of UNICS still had to take the first time out, 29:22. Three minutes before the big break, at the scoreboard was burning 31:27. The point in the first half was put by the first touch only after replacing Andrei Koscheev, 42:34. But guests are still better at rebounds, 15-21, and they are mistaken more often,  turnovers of 6-8.

The third quarter of the home team began very strictly on the defensive, three minutes not allowing opponents to score any points, 48:34. Ndour brings the advantage of UNICS to 21 points, 58:37. Kazan simply destroyed Saratov in these moments. For six and a half minutes, Avtodor was able to score only three points from the free- throws line, and in only a quarter - five against 22 of the host! And under the shield, everything was fine, rebounds 27-28.

The final period began with the “three” from Sheleketo, 67:39, a solid score. Opponents well understood that the fate of the match has already been decided. All Saratovtsians had reduced the gap in the score from “minus 28” to “minus 13”, 76:63 in the end. Alexander Bille got his playing time and, thus,  UNICS  got confident and beautiful victory over the principal rival.

UNICS (Kazan) - Avtodor (Saratov) - 76:63 (22:14, 20:20, 22: 5, 12:24). Top performers: UNICS - Ndur (18), Klimenko (10 + 7 rebounds), Avtodor - Carmichael (14), Beauford (14), Mikhailovsky (12).
