The Unix basketball players from Kazan had an unreal night as they dropped the win over Barcelona in the final minutes of the game, more precisely in overtime!
The boys in burgundy blue shirts managed to make an amazing turnaround and reach victory in the match of round 17 of the Euroleague with a score of 111: 109. What distinguished this duel is the fact that the Russian team had 20 points at the start of the last quarter, when even Ayse Kanan silenced the fans of the team the host. And then there was the madness.
With Corica’s hat-trick, Barcelona were able to enter the dramatic finale in which “ice” Nikola Mirotic won with three free throws and hit all three and took the match into overtime (94:94).
Then, the decisive moment was seen in the latter part of the match 27 seconds before the end, when Schmitz hit an attacking jump after a missed penalty by Shanla, and then Djokobaitis put the ball in the basket for 108:106.
After that, we witnessed real drama, and eventually Lorenzo Brown missed a three-point shot and won, bringing Barcelona a pocket victory in the last minute.
Mirotic was the most efficient with 28 points, Kyle Coric with 24 points, Jokobaitis 15, Exum 13 and Laprovittola 12 points. In the unbeaten team, Lorenzo Brown scored 27 points and nine assists, John Brown had 21 points, Keenan 20 and Hezonga 18.
