The fans could enjoy quite many interesting games in the last round. The round ended with derby games and even winless team recording their first victory.

The most interesting game of round 14 was a derby match between two teams from Russia. Sixth ranked Triumph Lyubertsy won against host BC Nizhny Novgorod (7-7) 80-76. The guests took control from the first minutes by winning first half. But BC Nizhny Novgorod won fourth quarter 28-22. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Triumph Lyubertsy made 16-of-19 free shots (84.2 percent) during the game. It was a great shooting night for Triumph Lyubertsy especially from behind the arc, where they had solid 52.6 percentage. Sergey Karasev (202-93) orchestrated the victory by scoring 22 points (was perfect 9-for-9 from the free throw line !!!). American point guard Tywain McKee (188-86, college: Coppin St.) contributed with 15 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists for the winners. Triumph Lyubertsy's coach Vasiliy Karasev used an eleven-player rotation in such tough game. Power forward Artem Yakovenko (205-88) replied with 23 points and 5 rebounds for BC Nizhny Novgorod. Triumph Lyubertsy moved-up to fifth place, which they share with N.Novgorod. Triumph Lyubertsy is looking forward to face higher ranked Lokomotiv (#3) in Kuban in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. BC Nizhny Novgorod will play on the road against Neptunas in Klaipeda and is hoping to win this game.
One of the most interesting games of round 14 was a derby match between two teams from Russia. Third ranked Lokomotiv won against host Enisey Krasnoyarsk (5-9) 94-87. Lithuanian point guard Mantas Kalnietis (195-86, agency: Interperformances) scored 35 points (!!!), 5 rebounds and 7 assists (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field) to lead the charge for the winners and Aleks Maric chipped in 13 points and 6 rebounds during the contest. American forward Davon Jefferson (204-86, college: USC) responded with 24 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Lokomotiv have a solid four-game winning streak.

One of the most interesting games of round 14 was a derby match between two teams from Russia. Fourth ranked Unics Kazan won against visiting Khimky (10-4) 76-70. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Khimky. Kostas Kaimakoglou notched 21 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists and 4 steals to lead the effort. Even 14 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists by Vitaliy Fridzon did not help to save the game for Khimky. Both coaches tested many bench players and allowed the starting five to rest.

Belarusian Tsmoki-Minsk's fans can finally celebrate the first win of their team after 13 consecutive loses. They used home court advantage to defeat Lithuanian Neptunas (2-12) 93-71 on Sunday. Tierre Brown orchestrated the victory by scoring 23 points. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games.
