PAOK Thessaloniki collected its second victory in as many games by winning a thriller on the road 89-88 at Alba Fehervar in Eurocup Group F action. Kostas Charalampidis made what amounted to be the game-winning free throws with 43 seconds left for PAOK. Maurice Kemp missed a put-back at the buzzer for Fehervar. Michael Tsairelis collected 21 points, six rebounds, five assists and two steals for PAOK, which also received 19 points from Charalampidis, 13 points from Mark Payne, 12 from Evangelos Margaritis and 10 from Giorgos Bogris. Fehervar dropped to 0-2 despite Kemp pouring in 26 points while Ramone Moore scored 18 points and Braydon Hobbs had 16.

Zoltan Supola’s basket gave Fehervar a 9-4 early lead. D.J. Cooper answered with a three-ball to make it 9-7. The hosts slowly worked on pulling away and led 14-9 on Kemp’s three-point play. The Fehervar’s advantage was 16-13 after one quarter. Payne got PAOK to within 18-17 early in the second quarter before Moore knocked down a trey and Kemp had another and-one for a 24-19 cushion. Margaritis had the guests within 30-27 before yet another three-point play by Kemp made it 35-27. Fehervar increased the lead to nine points with a triple by Hobbs to make it 38-29. Charalampidis hit a shot at the buzzer as PAOK went into the locker room down 42-35. After Cooper opened the second half with a three-ball, Moore ended a 6-0 Fehervar run to take a 48-38 lead. Tsairelis made four free throws as PAOK pulled to within 48-45 and Margaritis’ triple knotted the game at 50-50. Neither team could take control of the game and the biggest lead the rest of the quarters was 63-60 on Hobbs’ three-pointer and 67-64 when Martynas Szanati scored at the third quarter buzzer. Tsairelis scored four points as PAOK opened the fourth period with an 0-8 to take a 67-72 lead. Fehervar finally scored with two Moore free throws after more than two minutes. Hobbs hit a long ball to even the game at 72-72 and nailed another triple to make it 75-75. Kemp’s three-point play gave the hosts the lead and his dunk pushed the advantage to 82-77 with less than five minutes to play. It was still a five-point game with less than three minutes left when Tsairelis scored two baskets and Bogris made two foul shots for an 86-87 PAOK lead. Norbert Toth connected with two from the line but the guests regained the lead 88-89 with Charalampidis’ foul shots with 43 seconds to play. Levente Juhos missed a three-pointer with seven seconds left for Fehervar and Kemp missed the rebound put-back to give PAOK the road victory.

FRADE, CARLOS
Alba Fehervar
"First I would like to congratulate to PAOK. It was a difficult game, they worked hard for the win. I'm not happy with my team’s defense, because PAOK shot over 70%, so this means our defense wasn't good. I'm pleased with our offense and our commitment. We worked hard and I think we are improving game by game. We are getting near to this level and we can play tight games against teams like PAOK, but we still have to work a lot. "
MARKOPOULOS, SOULIS
PAOK Thessaloniki
"It was a difficult game, we weren't focused on defense in the first half. In the second half we played better, scored strong points and came back to the game. Alba was a tough opponent, but we won and this is the most important thing. "

"It's obvious we are a small team here, we have to work a lot to be treated equally with big teams. But we are on good road, it is a good feeling to play an exciting, tight game against PAOK. The atmosphere was fantastic. I am proud of the team."
PAYNE, MARK
PAOK Thessaloniki
"I'm very happy because we won the second game in the Eurocup. Alba Fehervar was really good in the first half, but we changed and fortunately we won the game."
