The VEF of Riga after the victory over Tallinn's Kalev (82:74) did not change the top five and started the game well, having won five points (9: 4) in the fourth minute after Winston Konsil's goal and achieved almost the whole first room (18:16). In addition, early in the second quarter, VEF was able to demonstrate a good counterattack, as in fast corners, and also played against the basket finding a response to a couple of attempts to break the house but in the second quarter of the quarter , Rigans' attack was stuck for more than four minutes.
For the first time, Kazan's UNICS took just one minute at 17 minutes, and the Rigans did not help even one minute after the second round of Erik Makolum (27:36). After the game was restarted, the home side collected eight more points and over the course of about four minutes, Latvia's victory beat 17: 0 (44:27), with a comfortable 17-point interval (46:29 ).
Also, the difference in the range did not change the scene. UNICS continued to increase the lead, with a fourth-quarter lead over 30 points already (72:40). Then the Rigans finally managed to stop the free fall and make 13 points a little more polite in a row (55:74), losing in the final by 15 points (74:89).
