THE TAKE

Unics Kazan basically needs to just win its ULEB Cup Last 16 return leg at home against Artland Dragons to reach the Final Eight. Head coach Aco Petrovic's Unics used a strong fourth quarter to turn a 15-point second half deficit into just an 80-78 loss at Artland. Petrovic's Russian team allowed Dragons to shoot 54% from the field but out-rebounded Artland 34-24 in staying in the game late. Power forward Darjus Lavrinovic collected 23 points, 8 rebounds, 2 assists and 3 blocked shots while forward Dusko Savanovic added 16 points off the bench and shooting guard Sergei Chikalkin had 15. But small forward Tariq Kirksay was held to just 9 points - 19.5 less than he averaged in Unics's Last 32 series win over Turk Telekom. Kirksay will have to bounce back closer to his season average of 14.3 points if Kazan would like to set up a Final Eight date against either Akasvayu Girona or Hemofarm. Head coach Chris Fleming's Artland led by 15 points in the third quarter but managed its main goal of winning its home leg on point guard John Goldsberry's last second basket. Center Adam Chubb had 13 points and power forward Chad Prewitt added 11. But Kazan contained small forward Leon Rodgers and shooting guard Lamont McIntosh both to just 4 points. However, forward Terrance Thomas had his second-best game of the season with 17 points and 4 rebounds off the bench and reserve big man Darious Hall poured in a season-high 15 points as well to keep Dragons's fairytale run alive. Still, Rodgers and McIntosh will have to bounce back if Artland hopes to move on to the Final Eight. Improving on the 31% (5-of-16) from long range should help Fleming's men. And Dragons will have to work harder in the block and remain focused to stay in the game late.

Darjus Lavrinovic - Unics Kazan Dusko Savanovic scored 11 of his 19 points in the final four minutes as Unics Kazan used a 17-5 final push to book its spot in the ULEB Cup Final Eight with a 74-59 victory over Artland Dragons. Kazan will face either Akasvayu Girona or Hemofarm after collecting a 152-139 aggregate win over the fairytale team Artland, which was making its international debut this season. Darjus Lavrinovic had another tremendous game with 21 points, 16 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 blocked shots. Kazan won the game despite not having one starter score in double figures with Dmitry Sokolov and Marko Tusek both tallying 6 points. Tariq Kirksay collected 10 points, 2 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 steals off the bench, where Savanovic and Lavrinovic also both started the game. Artland was led by 16 points from Adam Chubb, while John Goldsberry scored 14 points and Leon Rodgers had 11 points and 7 rebounds.

Tusek got the game going for Kazan with a three-pointer, which Rodgers matched for Artland's first score. Rodgers followed that with a three-point play. Another basket by Rodgers and Goldsberry's second score gave the Dragons an early 6-14 lead. After Kirksay finally entered the scoring column, Lavrinovic tallied 4 points and watched Kirksay's three-ball complete an 11-2 Unics run for a 17-16 lead. Goldsberry answered from downtown but Kirksay's next hoop left the game knotted at 19-19 after one period. Darious Hall's foul shot opened the second for the visitors and Savanovic gave Kazan back the lead and back-to-back baskets by Lavrinovic – the second a triple – made it 26-22. Two Terrence Thomas scores left Artland down just 33-31. But Victor Keyru knocked down a three-pointer to start a 7-1 Unics surge to close the first half ahead 40-32.

John Goldsberry - Artland DragonsChubb started the second half for Artland but two Sokolov baskets kept Kazan up 44-36. The hosts held Dragons at bay and increased the lead to 9 points – 48-39 – on Tusek's foul shots. Lamont McIntosh knocked down a three-ball, Hall scored again and EJ Rowland's basket had the deficit down to 50-46 after three periods. Kazan struck first in the fourth period through Lavrinovic, but Goldsberry answered with a three-pointer to trim it to 52-49. Lavrinovic knocked down his own three and Sergei Chikalkin's basket gave Unics a 57-51 lead with seven minutes to go. Chubb's foul shot trimmed the deficit to 57-54 only to see Savanovic converted a three-point play and grab another basket to push the gap to 64-54 with four minutes to play. Artland playmaker Goldsberry then fouled out and Lavrinovic's next tally made it 66-54. Chubb answered with a three-point play and another basket to make it 67-59. But Savanovic knocked down three more scores as Kazan completed a 17-5 run to finish the game.
