Khimki: Alexey Shved (36 + 6 ast), Janis Timma (23), Jordan Mickey (10 + 8 reb)

UNICS erased a 10-point deficit to open the fourth quarter, rallying for a crucial Game 1 victory in its semifinal series with Khimki.

The White and Green enjoyed a balanced attack as five players scored 13 or more points, led by Raymar Morgan’s 22. But the comeback was the big story. At risk of losing home-court advantage in the opening game, UNICS ripped off a 23-7 run over the first 7:30 of the fourth quarter.

Despite squandering its lead, Khimki nearly came back. Alexey Shved hit a 3-pointer with 10 seconds left to cut the Moscow Region deficit to one, 92-91. But on the following inbounds play, Stefan Markovic was whistled for an unsportsmanlike foul and Kazan guards Anton Ponkrashov and Errick McCollum sealed the victory at the line.

Shved matched his playoff record of 36 points in the defeat.
