The offensive force of Kazan
Kazan has scored 90 or more in two of the three games and they have done a great job of attaining balance on that end. In the last game, both Lokomotiv and Kazan made 10 triples each but Kazan outrebounded and ended up with more rebounds compared to Lokomotiv in the last match, with a 10:5 advantage. The Lokomotiv squad did well scoring from within the three-point arc, making 23 of their 33 shots, however, the Kazan team had more attempts and made 25 of their 45 from inside the three-point line.
In the last game, four players scored at least 17 points and that will surely get it done in this league. Mario Hezonja had 17, Lorenzo Brown had 18, Jaron Johnson had 18 points, and Jonye Tekiri had 19 points. On the other hand, the Lokomotiv team also had three scores scoring at least 17 points, Jaylen Bradford led them with 24, Jonathan Motley had 18 and Erick McCollum had 17. It will be interesting to see how the Lokomotiv defense responds to Kazan.
