Our guys started the match actively - a 12-2 spurt in just over 3 minutes and an early time-out from the hosts' bench. Immediately after the pause, Uralmash slightly reduced the gap, but then MBA continued its lead. The red and white defended well, which gave them opportunities for quick attacks. In addition, long-range artillery worked well - five threes in nine attempts in the opening quarter.

Throughout the second ten minutes, the Urals tried to get out of the double-digit difference and at the end of the first half they still succeeded in this. Now the hosts have scored 27 points in the quarter, and MBA only has “+6” left from “+17”.

After a long break, Uralmash completed its chase - in the middle of the third quarter, Rostislav Vergun's team took the lead, but did not lead for long. MBA's percentage of long-range hits dropped, and other options did not work so successfully, and the teams went to the final two-minute rest with the score tied.

In the fourth quarter, the Urals ran away by six points, but MBA, with hits from Andrei Lopatin and Pasha Ismailov, restored the balance, and Alexander Khomenko’s “three” brought the Muscovites ahead. Fortunately, our guys corrected their aim and were able to break away once again: 30 seconds before the siren, the red and white had a 7-point head start, Uralmash made every effort to make another comeback, but the victory remains ours. The final score is 79:77.
