Kalev players only managed to make 17 shots from their 57 which is about 30% against the Euroleague club and were close to a negative VTB record with 24 turnovers (record is 27). The rebounding battle was tight, and Kalev had more offensive rebounds than Khimki, but that was the only positive team statistic which they won.

Overall the game was quite similar to last week’s game against CSKA when they fought back hard until the half-time and the game was decided again in the third quarter which Kalev lost 6:21. On wednesday Kalev will face Krasnojraski Jenissei in FIBA Europe Cup. VTB league continues on 21st of november when they’ll travel to Volgograd to meet Krasnõi Oktjabr.
