Jackson, Bilan shine in Cedevita’s come-from-behind win over Nizhny

Cedevita Zagreb overturned a 15-point third-quarter deficit to crush Nizhny Novgorod 92-77 on Wednesday at Dom Sportova Zagreb. Pierre Jackson made 6 of 8 three-pointers en route to 38 points and Miro Bilan posted 18 points and 11 rebounds for the winners. Cedevita claimed its second consecutive win and evened its record at 2-2. Nizhny returned to the loss column and saw its record fall to 2-2. Ivan Strebkov paced Nizhny with 21 points and 6 assists, Deandre Kane added 15 points and 12 rebounds, Kenny Boynton scored 12 and Ingus Jakovics in 11. Cedevita forced Nizhny into 17 turnovers, which was 10 more than the hosts.

Nizhny finished the first quarter on a tear to lead 23-33. Nizhny continued its good form through the next 10 minutes to lead by as many as 17 before the hosts closed the gap to 42-52 at halftime. After the break, Nizhny pushed ahead 44-59, but Cedevita again cut the deficit to 59-66 by the end of the third quarter and turned the tables with a 26-4 fourth-quarter run to take an important victory.

Head Coaches

MRSIC, VELJKO
Cedevita Zagreb
"We showed two faces in this game. We started the fourth quarter the way they started the first one. I would like to congratulate to my players. They played great in the second half and I believe this team has potential to be great. The addition of Jackson and Tomas was tremendous for us. We wanted to sign Jackson in the summer, but he wanted to wait for an opportunity in NBA. However, he is now with us and he and Tomas gave us just what we needed as team."
STALBERGS, ARTURS
Nizhny Novgorod
"We played without offense in the second half. We made too many turnovers and we had problems to put ourselves in good positions on offense. After missing some wide-open layups, we lost our self-confidence in the third quarter and the last 10 minutes were just a summary of the beginning of the second half."

“This was a great game for me and my teammates. We started slow, but we managed to get a win. I was trying to do the best I could tonight. I have a good feel for the game. I can pass and I can score and today we needed scoring.”
VENE, SIIM-SANDER
Nizhny Novgorod
"We came out ready and strong. The first half was good for us, but in the second half they came out with a different defensive plan. We had too many turnovers and in the last quarter we just collapsed."
