Khimki's luck turned with a basketball header!
Khimki Moscow Region started the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague season with some tough luck. Back-to-back one-point losses on last-second shots in Rounds 3 and 4 sent Khimki to a 0-4 start.
But if this team eventually makes another run at the playoffs, as it did last season, we might look back on a play in the second quarter on Wednesday of Round 8 as the moment when Khimki's luck turned.
With 3:25 left before halftime, Stefan Markovic rose to shoot but, noticing big man Jordan Mickey open underneath, instead fired a pass inside. Mickey thought Markovic had shot, however, and had already put his attention on positioning himself for a rebound.
