THE TAKE

Turk Telekom was not expecting a 26-point loss on the road, but that is what the team has to bounce back from as it welcomes Unics Kazan in the ULEB Cup Last 32 return leg. Head coach Ercument Sunter's Telekom was man-handled at Kazan, getting out-rebounded 43-26 in losing 91-65. The Turkish team committed 19 turnovers and shot just 44% from the field while allowing Unics to hit 50% for the game. Playmaker Khalid El-Amin (19 points), center Erwin Dudley (17) and power forward Chris Williams (14) got their points, but Sunter's team could not get others involved as witnessed by 0 assists by El-Amin and 9 total assists by the team. Newly-acquired big man Kris Lang, who Turk was hoping could help replace some of the missing production from the injured Michael Wright, was a non-factor with 1 point, 1 rebound and 1 assist in 8 minutes. And it didn't help things that the Telekom shooters made just 5-of-17 (29%) from long range. Sunter hopes his sharp-shooters will be on target early and often or that successful regular season will be a distant memory. Unics Kazan meanwhile needs to only approach the showing it had at home to move to a Last 16 showdown with Artland Dragons or Triumph Lyubertsy. Power forward Tariq Kirksay won weekly MVP honors with his 31 points, 8 rebounds and 3 assists. But center Darjus Lavrinovic was not too far behind with 21 points, 8 rebounds, 5 assists and 6 blocked shots. Those two were nearly enough to finish off Turk but power forward Dusko Savanovic added 13 points off the bench and reserve forward Nikita Kurbanov chipped in 7 points and 6 rebounds. Unics head coach Aco Petrovic's knows he won't have to tell his team too much. This would be a huge shock if Telekom reverses this first leg to advance.

Khalid El-Amin - Turk Telekom Tariq Kirksay had another outstanding game as Unics Kazan advanced to a ULEB Cup Last 16 showdown with Artland Dragons despite losing at Turk Telekom 96-93 in the Last 32 return leg. Unics ended up winning the two-game series with a 184-161 aggregate score. With Telekom leading by 16 points just after the break, Unics used a 25-11 third quarter run to take the life out of the hosts, who had to make up a 26-point loss from last week’s game at Kazan. Unics' all-around star Kirksay collected 26 points, 5 rebounds and 3 assists. Virgil Stanescu added 17 points and 11 rebounds while Dusko Savanovic had 17 points and 5 assists, Sergei Chikalkin chipped in 12 points and Victor Keyru 10. Chris Williams paced Turk Telekom with 20 points and 6 rebounds while Kris Lang had 19 points, Haluk Yildirim 15, Khalid El-Amin 13 and Muratcan Guler 12. Erwin Dudley collected just 6 points and 1 rebound as Turk's ULEB Cup campaign ends after such a successful regular season.

Williams hit the first basket of the game for the hosts, but Chikalkin answered with a triple. Lang's second score of the night and a bucket by Bekir Yarangume made it 9-5, however Kirksay soon evened things at 9-9. Kirksay and Lavrinovic would not let Turk Telekom pull away, though back-to-back scores by Williams made it 24-17. The hosts led 25-19 after one period. Stanescu scored the first three points of the second for Unics only to see Ivica Jurkovic's three open a 30-22 gap. Kirksay answered from long range, but Williams went back-to-back again and El-Amin and Guler knocked down three-pointers as the Tutk Telekom advantage increased to 46-31. Stanescu scored three baskets to close out the half with Kazan trailing 49-37 – but still leading the series by 14 points.

Dusko Savanovic - Unics KazanScores by Williams and Lang to open the second half made it 53-37. But Kirksay answered with a three-pointer and a second basket to start a 4-13 Kazan surge which included three-pointers from Savanovic and Chikalkin to get within 57-52. Five Turk Telekom foul shots reestablished a 10-point lead, 62-52. Stanescu and Kirksay both scored 4 points in a 2-10 Unics run, which was stopped by an El-Amin long ball. But Keyru answered with a triple of his own and Kirksay's foul shot made it a one-point game, which it was after three periods at 69-68. Jerry McCullough opened the fourth quarter with his first two baskets of the game for a 69-73 Kazan advantage. Williams and Yildirim both hit threes to pull within 75-76. But with the 26 points to make up from the first leg, Turk had no chance – especially as Kirksay got scoring in the fourth and his three made it 81-87. El-Amin and Yildirim both hit three-pointers to even the game. And two foul shots by Yildirim gave the hosts the lead 93-91. Savanovic tied the game but Guler's three-ball gave Turk the consolation victory.
