They are currently on a free fall, having lost nine consecutive games and last week they lost at home against Zalgiris Kaunas with an 80-82 score. The top scorer of the league, Keith Langford, leads the Unics offense with 22.5 ppg, 3.6 rpg and 3.7 apg. He is followed by Artsiom Parakhouski with 11.7 ppg, adding team highs in rebounds with 5.1 per game and blocks, with 1.3 per game. Quim Colom also adds 11.7 ppg and a team high 5.8 assists per game.

This will be the fourth time these two teams meet in Euroleague with Unics Kazan having a 3-0 lead. In their previous meeting earlier this season, Unics Kazan won at home with a 73-60 score.
