Khimki became the first team to nine wins in the League, dismantling Zielona Gora on the road, 97-74. The visitors shot a scorching 57% from beyond the arc (16-28) and never trailed en route to a 23-point win.

Jordan Mickey led the way for Khimki, recording his third double-double of the season (21 points, 11 rebounds). The Russian club took control in the opening period, opening up a 10-point lead with six 3-pointers in the quarter.

Zielona Gora was simply overpowered inside and out. The home team shot 23% from three-point land and got outrebounded 42-24, a sure recipe for disaster. Gabe DeVoe was the only reliable threat for the Poles, scoring a team-high 17.

Trailing 54-33 at halftime, Zielona Gora finished the 3rd quarter on a 14-0 run to pull within 16. DeVoe and Jaroslaw Mokros kept the momentum going early in the 4th, knocking down back-to-back triples, before Zeljko Sakic cut Khimki’s lead to 12, 76-64, with a layup.

But the home team never got any closer. Egor Vyaltsev drilled three straight triples for Khimki and the visitors went up by as much as 26 late in the final period.

The victory moves Khimki to 9-0. Zielona Gora falls to 2-6, in a four-way tie for 10th place.
