The victory was won in the first home match of the semi-final series.

The game in Krasnodar was the first after the removal of restrictions on attending home matches of Lokomotiv Kuban. 6127 spectators witnessed the victory of the railway workers over the army team. This is an absolute season attendance record for Krasnodar and the second highest in this VTB United League championship. This was reported by the press service of PBC Lokomotiv-Kuban.

The first quarter was won by guests. But Loko’s basketball players were already leading by a big break in the score 54:49. The army team could not cope with Krasnodar center Jonathan Motley. The American scored 25 points with one hundred percent implementation of shots from the game.

In the second half, the attacking impulse of the hosts was supported by the young players of Loko. Alexander Shcherbenev scored twice in a row from behind the arc, Andrey Martyuk won rebounds on both shields. As a result, Lokomotiv-Kuban beats the capital’s army team in the first home match of the ½ final series – 94:82. The next game will also take place in Krasnodar Basket Hall on May 12 at 19:30.

“It’s always great to beat an opponent, and especially one like CSKA, and even when the home stands are full. To be honest, I don’t remember such a holiday for a long time. Thanks to everyone who came today. This support is half the success, 50% of our overall victory. Restrictions on attending matches have been lifted, life is getting better – we are waiting for everyone at the Basket Hall on May 12 for the fourth match of the series,” commented captain of PBC Lokomotiv-Kuban Stanislav Ilnitsky.
