Sometimes the away team takes control of a basketball game early on and it can be a long night for the home fans and players. There is a need to hang on in there and the Minsk team did just about that. It will be a tough challenge for the Belarus side on Thursday evening but with a place in the FIBA Champions League at stake, don’t rule them out just yet.
When you think that the away team held the lead in this game for a total of 38 minutes, they may actually be slightly disappointed with just a 4 point lead for their home game. However, any team would be delighted at grabbing an away win and there will be confidence from the Israeli side than they can finish the job on Thursday evening.
The final score in the opening leg was:
Tsmoki Minsk 66 v Ironi Nahariya 70

The cruellest blow to the home side’s hosts came with just five seconds left on the clock. At this point, the hosts were trailing by one point, an amount that could easily be overturned in a full game of basketball. However, when Marquis Teague delivered his 7th assist of the night, the three-point effort from Stuart Williams Douglass stretched the gap to 4 and gives the game a different complexion as it heads to Europe.
At one point, the away team were ahead by 10 points, leading 33-43 but the hosts managed to battle back. This was partly due to the showing of Justin Gray, who managed to grab 20 points while Dru Joyce picked up 16 points in the loss. In the winning side, Jonathan Skjoldebrand picked up 15 points, Yancy Gates provided 13 points and Teague had a total of 11 points to add to his assists.
A place in Group A is at stake for the team that makes it through this tie and the hosts are strongly tipped to make it to the FIBA Champions League.
