MOS vs ZEN Dream11: We are well into the Russian Basketball League Finals and it has been another intriguing season. In this game, CSKA Moscow will host the St Zenit Petersburg. Game 4 was amazing as Moscow beat Zenit 111:110 as Will Clyburn dropped 33 points, however, it was Will Clyburn who snatched the limelight as he hit a game-winning buzzer-beating shot. Moscow has a three-one lead here and a win means that they will clinch the title. Can they accomplish that at home?
Host: CSKA Moscow
Visitors: Zenit St Petersburg
Match Timing: 30 May, @ 10:30 PM (+05:30 UTC)
Venue: Sports Swimming Complex CSKA
Zenit misses a golden chance
Zenit will rue the last minute of the previous game as they were unable to stop Will Clyburn. He first pump-faked Polythress and then nailed the jumper from around 15+ feet out with a contested hand coming towards him. But of course, that is how it is, there is a reason why you play the game till the buzzer. Zenit themselves made the game reach the OT after consistently making late-game jumpers, but in the end, it only prolonged the agony.
Both teams did a great job of getting to the line and like the game itself, the stats were identical from the free-throw line. Zenit made 23 of 27 whereas Moscow made 24 of 28 shots from the triples. It is eerie how close the other statlines are. Both Zenit and Moscow made 13 triples each whereas both teams made 24 free throws from inside the three-point line. Zenit committed just seven turnovers which is commendable that the game went to the Second OT but again, they must be finding it unfair how the last game’s result panned out.
