PBL. UNICS vs. BC Khimki 1 june 2011
Fantastic second quarter didn't allow the Khimkians to avoid a validol ending in the second road game of a semifinal play-off series. Our team was also beaten by UNICS Kazan – 57-62 (13-18, 15-2, 14-18, 15-24). Third and — if need — fourth games will be played in Khimki on Saturday, June 4 and Sunday, June 5 at 19.00 msk.
Best scorers: Loncar (19 + 8 rebounds), Kelati (11 + 3 assists + 3 rebounds)
Rimas Kurtinaitis, BC Khimki head coach:
— After the second quarter it looked like we were controlling the game. But UNICS played well in the ending by moral and volitional qualities. Our problem is that we can not score from the game in a match where everything is decided by one or two throws. But it's the playoff series, we have two home meetings, and we'll try to win. Tiredness causes balls losses, but it's not in a champion mood to refer to it.
