 "Yenisei" from  Krasnoyarsk in today's match once again proved its reputation as an uncompromising team of the VTB United League. Before the big break UNICS could not seize the advantage. At the same time, every player of the team contributed to the victory today, all the basketball players on the floor.

UNICS started the game in an unusual starting five: Melvin Ejim, Quino Colom, Grigory Shukhovtsov, Jamar Smith and Trenton Lockett. And started with three turnovers in two minutes, 2: 3 after the "three" of Anthony Hilliard. Okay, and Colom soon came from behind the arc, 7: 4. Suleiman Braimoh dunk again taking the Siberians forward, 7: 8. Evgeny Kolesnikov and Maurice Ndur enter the game. In the middle of the quarter  Stephane Lasme replaced Shukhovtsov. Anton Ponkrashov also came out. The second "three" of guests and already score becomes tie, 11:11.  Another long throw of  Vitali Liutych and again "Yenisei" is in a lead, 15:16. UNICS has not seriously started playing, it seems, the Kazanians have all the thoughts already in Limoges, where they go for the match of the Top 16 of the European Cup tonight. Six turnovers in 10 minutes for the owners are indicative.

At the beginning of the second quarter for the first time since December in the UNICS Pavel Sergeyev came out. Guests continue to regularly score from beyond the arc, 22:23. At some point, the teams began to defend themselves so firmly that for two minutes no one could score a single point. Even from the free-throw line. An then comes the first alley-up: Colom passed, Lockett planted the ball from above, 36:29. But the "Yenisei" continues to breathe in the back of the head to the hosts, 38:34, so finished the second quarter. And who said it would be easy? And under the shield all is hard, the rebounds account in the first half of 19-16.

The third quarter began with a successful attack by the guests and continued with the well-aimed long shots of Ndur and Colom, 44:36. Another "three" from the guests - 46:42. Shootout, 51:42, three-pointer from Smith. Finally three minutes before the last break Ponkrashov from the middle distance for the first time in the match pushes the Siberians to a distance of 10 points, 56:46. But Lasme gets his  fourth foul . UNICS plays in two dispatchers: Ponkrashov + Sergeev. Under the shield everything is smooth, the rebounds are 28-27.

The last period of the team began when the score was 66:55. A couple of minutes on the scoreboard, other numbers were burning, 68:62 after a successful guest break. Colom from the free-throw line, 74:62. But until now the calm ending is very far. Ponkrashov scores from behind the arc, 77:62. The maximum advantage of the hosts in the game. And the fourth foul to Ejim in the middle of the quarter. And the fifth to Ndur for 3-27 to the end.  UNICS confidently brought the match to a victorious end.

UNICS (Kazan) - "Yenisei" (Krasnoyarsk) - 91:76 (17:16, 21:18, 28:21, 25:21). The most productive: UNICS - Lockett (13), Smith (11), Ponkrashov (13), Lasme (17), Colom (18); "Yenisei" - Liutych (13), Hilliard (16), Meyers (10).
