Zenit became the silver medalist of the Russian Cup
The Russian Cup final game against Nizhny Novgorod was a logical finish of the tournament as both teams looked pretty solid from the beginning of the cup until the very end. Earlier, MBA prevailed over Khimki and grabbed the bronze medals, and now was the time for Zenit and NN to step on the court and decide who’s going to take the trophy.
Nizhny started really well as Zoran Lukic’s team couldn’t miss a shot. The were +11 after the first quarter, and though they lost the second one, at the halftime they still had +6.
The third quarter was the one where our team has finally got the lead, but… bot for long. NN jumped to 10-0 run and never looked back. Zenit is losing the Russian Cup – 72:84. Only silver medals.
Onto the VTB League finals!
