In the last match of the season UNICS lost in the "Final Four" of the VTB United League to Zenit.

And most importantly, the hero of the match with "Khimki" -Jamar Smith, who had barely left the site in the last minute of the meeting after a terrible fall during the steal of the ball, is alive and well. He trained well and was ready to play with Zenit. VTB United League also recognized Smith as the best player of the season 2017/18, which comes off the bench! Fairly, Smith - the main scorer of the Kazan team in the tournament. He scores 14.4 points on average per match, and also makes 2.4 assists and 2.2 rebounds.

And the game with "Zenith" Kazan began in a traditional starting five: Melvin Ejim, Quino Colom, Stephane Lasme, Trenton Lockett and Evgeny Kolesnikov. And after Lasme scored a dunk, 2: 2, the attack of UNICS buried in the blank wall of defense of "Zenith", conceding a dash 0-7, 2:12. Looking ahead, we note that Lasme has missed all his other 5 shots, it was not his day. Zenith defended well, forcing Kazan to lose the ball over and over again. In the middle of the quarter Smith entered the game.

After the "three"  by Ponkrashov gap was reduced to 6 points, 11:17. And yet the first 10 minutes Petrograders won confidently and deservedly, 15:26.

If Alexei Shved brought a lot of trouble to UNICS in the semi-finals, then today the shot from the American defender of "Zenith" Kyle Kuric flew, he scored 23 points for the first 20 minutes! For a long break, an unpleasant load of three fouls was in the passive of Ndour, Lasme and Lockett. Thank you, Smith, he again began to bombard the ring  of Zenith heavily. But at some point, it was in the middle of the second quarter, "Zenith" was already 21 points, 23:44. Once again, Kazan not only made conclusions from their mistakes during the meeting, but also showed the character. The first half ended with a bright chord from the next "trilogy" of Smith, the addition of Ndour and a magnificent passage through the entire site of Ejim, 41:52. UNICS won 10 points.On the wave of success, Kazan also started in the third period as effectively. And after the fierce dunk by Ndour the score was 51:56.  Alas, after a timeout Petrograders were able to regain the initiative by making a jerk 8-0, 51:64. This was the key episode of the match. Yes, Vladislav Trushkin from behind the arc reduced the gap to 8 points, 59:67, and at the beginning of the final quarter Smith came from an average distance, 63:70, but the turn of the game the Kazan did not succeed. First of all, because of the abundance of errors, the loss account is eloquent, 20-7. This was the main reason for the failure of UNICS. Three minutes before the end of the match was clear, 69:90. And the loss of "Zenith" Sergei Karasev with five fouls two minutes before the end has not affected the game.

UNICS (Kazan) - Zenit (St. Petersburg) - 79: 93 (15:26, 26:26, 20:18, 18:23). The most productive: UNICS - Colom (13), Smith (16), Ejim (14 + 7 rebounds), Ndour (10 + 7 rebounds), Ponkrashov (11 + 9 rebounds); Zenit - Kuric (29), Harper (20), Whittington (12), Karasev (11).
