The Take

In a pivotal clash on Tuesday, Neptunas Klaipeda (3-3) will try to distance itself from visiting Hapoel Bank Yahav Jerusalem (2-4) and in so doing, get closer to the Last 32. No team scores more points on its home floor than Neptunas (89.7), while Jerusalem has but a single victory in the last 12 road games dating back to the 2013-14 season. In an all-Russian clash, Nizhny Novgorod (3-3) hosts last-place Krasny Oktyabr Volgograd (1-5) and D.J. Copper who is the only player in the competition who averages double-digit assists (10.2). Nizhny is dangerous from long range, as it makes 10.3 triples per game, tied for second-best in the competition. Nizhny also does not allow opponents much from behind the arc, keeping them to a mere 5.2 triples per contest, while Oktyabr does well in that department away from home, making 9 three-pointers per game and averaging 92 points. In a high-profile clash in the Greek capital, AEK Athens (4-2) and the Round 6 co-MVP Loukas Mavrokefalidis host Galatasaray Odeabank Istanbul (5-1). Mavrokefalidis is Eurocup's leader in index rating (32-5), and scoring (24.8). Galatasaray is the second best scoring team (86.8), and commits least turnovers (10.7) through six games, and enters this game knowing a win combined with a Jerusalem loss would send it through to the Last 32.

Quotes Head Coaches

BOLSHAKOV, KYRYLO
Krasny Oktyabr Volgograd
"We are in the process of rebuilding, so from that point on we need to establish new style of play. It will be our third meeting with Nizhny this year, and two times before it was a battle to the end. Hope this time around fans will see a nice show, too."

"Nizhny has played better recently and a win against us will open the door for them to the Last 32. On the other hand, we are still in the mix and will show our best tomorrow."

Nizhny Novogord bests Krasny Oktyabr

Nizhny Novogord beat Krasny Oktyabr Volgograd 82-74 and claimed a two-win margin over fifth place in Group F with just three games left in the regular season. NIzhny improved to 4-3 record, while Krasny Oktyabr is at the bottom with a 1-6 record. It looked like Nizhny Novgorod broke the balance early in the third quarter when it took a 50-32 lead, but an outstanding run by the visitors put them in front 52-58. The game remained very close till the final minutes, when Kaspars Berzins tied at 61-61 and then scored a pair of three pointers to make the difference. Berzins amassed a double-double of 18 points and 10 rebounds plus 5 blocks, Victor Rudd scored 16 while Ivan Strebkov and Semen Antonov netted 10 points apiece. Richard Guinn led all scorers with 22 points for Oktyabr, Dmitry Sokolov drained 19 and Andrei Mateiunas had 16 in defeat.

Semen Antonov capped an initial 7-1 run for the home team, while Mateiunas hit a three to make it 10-8 after four minutes. Dmitriy Khvostov from long distance made it 17-12 for Nizhny and after Victor Zaryazhko extended the difference to 25-17 with another triple, Sokolov and Mateiunas fueled the visitors to 25-21 after 10 minutes. An 11-4 run capped by Uvan Strebkov from three-point land and Rasid Mahalbasic in the paint gave a double digit margin, 36-25 to the hosts. Viacheslav Zaytsev kept Oktyabr close, but Berzins and Vladimir Ivlev boosted Nizhny to a 45-32 halftime lead.

Rudd scored from downtown to raise the difference to 50-32, but then the visitors exploded with an amazing 2-26 run, fueled by 7 points from Sokolov and three pointers by four different players to take the lead at 52-58. Antonov and Ivlev sounded the charge for Nizhny to close within 59-61 through three quarters. Berzins tied things at 61-61 to start the final quarter and with the defenses suppressing the scoring, then Sokolov came through underneath to put Oktyabr in front 63-65, but a three-point-play by Rudd and a three drilled by Berzins gave a 71-65 advantage to the home team. Mateiunas and Sokolov kept Oktyabr close at 74-70, before Berzins and Strebkov hit back-to-back triples to go up 80-70 and capture the victory.

"Sometimes we play like we can play in the NBA and sometimes I don’t understand why we’ve chosen this sport. This game will give us a lot information to analyze. We are not consistent and that’s our biggest problem for now."
BOLSHAKOV, KYRYLO
Krasny Oktyabr Volgograd
"I’m satisfied with the way we played tonight. Maybe we were not that good on defense in the end of the game. However, we fought hard and I thank my players for that."
