The Estonian basketball champion BC Kalev/Cramo recorded one of its most impressive wins ever, beating BC Nizhny Novgorod of Russia 110:76 in the VTB United League in Tallinn on Sunday.

“Kalev played very well, I think it was their best game of the season. That was a completely different Kalev from the one we saw on videos and the one we prepared against,” Novgorod head coach Ainars Bagatskis said.

He added that only Real Madrid had previously scored so many points against them this season.

Kalev managed to lose the first quarter by 17:18, but ended the first half with a 14:3 run. Kalev continued where it left off in the second half, winning the third quarter 34:21 and the last quarter 27:17.

Frank Elegar collected 26 points, Gregor Arbet 25, including seven three pointers from 10 attempts.

The VTB league combines 10 top Russian teams, and one team each from Belarus, the Czech Republic, Finland, Estonia, Latvia and Kazakhstan. Novgorod was the losing finalist last season.

Novgorod is third in the 16-team league, Kalev 12th.
