The way the game goes
Season-opening game couldn’t be a regular thing. Before the game started worldwide famous Latvian band Brainstorm had made a lot of fun for fans. Moreover, Khimki – Zielona Gora was the first game played with new ecological League’s official game ball. It should be stated that it also was the first basketball game in VTB-Arena (apart from VTB League All-Star Game last year).

Something new was noticeable even in the way the teams played. Significantly changed teams are trying to build team chemistry for now.
