Tomorrow, March 25, the capital's basketball club will host a home game in the regular season of the VTB United League against «Parma» Basketball Club.

After the thriller in Nizhny Novgorod, Astana basketball players have immediately started preparing for a home game against Perm team.

«Parma» - is a Russian professional men's basketball club from the city of Perm.

  • The winner of the Cup of Russia 2015/2016
  • Bronze medalist of the Super League 2015/2016

Chronicle of past games:
For the Perm club, this is the second season in the VTB League. In its debut season, «Parma» finished the regular season at the last 13th place. This season, the Perm club shows excellent results and gives battle to every team that came to visit them. As for personal games with «Astana», all three previous matches were played in favor of «Astana». This season, the teams have already met in the arena in Perm, no one promised an easy walk, and the Astana team only overturned the hosts in overtime with a score of 90:84.
Current situation:
In this season, «Parma» was waiting for changes. The main coach of the team was replaced, Vyacheslav Shushakov was replaced by the equally famous coach in the VTB League, Latvian specialist Nikolai Mazurs, who is known for working with the Georgian «Vita», Saratov «Avtodor» and Kazan «UNICS.»  The changes in the roster of the team also took place. It is impossible to say that all the changes benefited «Parma».
The club from Perm takes 12th place in the tournament table of VTB League with the result of 5 wins, 11 defeats. «Astana» is on the 7th line, with the result of 6 wins, 11 defeats.
Commentary of the head coach of BC «Astana» Mikhail Karpenko:
- «Parma» Basketball Club has been playing only the second season in the VTB League, if last season it was an outsider, this season the team performs at a quite different level, they also continue to head for the playoffs. In the team, first of all, I want to highlight three foreign players: Cody Miller-McIntyre, Frank Gaines and Tre McLean, these athletes are the best shooting guards of this team and bring a great weight of the points. «Parma» is playing aggressively in defense, but I would say that the team bets on the attack, the team is playing well in transitions and we should be ready for it. If «Parma» wins a rebound or a steal, they punish the opponent with fast breaks and early attacks. One of our tasks is to stop them in the transition and decide how we will defend ourselves, how we can stand against Cody Miller-McIntyre, the American point guard who was a sensation of this season in the VTB League. We have been preparing for the match, and I believe that we will act on the court, as in previous home games, and then we will surely win.

The game that took place today in Astana within the framework of the regular VTB United League championship and ended with the score 78:84 (20:19, 18:19, 14:26, 26:20) in favor of the guests from Perm.

The first half of the game was absolutely equal. After a long break, the guests began to effectively attack the Astana's glass behind the arc, which contributed to a good lead of their rival, and the team of Nikolai Masursky burst forward. In the final quarter the hosts tried to reduce the backlog and approached the opponent, but luck was on the side of the guests.

The most effective:

  • «Astana»: Justin Carter (23 + 8 rebounds + 5 assists), Ike Udano (21 + 10 rebounds), Anthony Clemmons (17 + 4 steals).
  • «PARMA»: Frank Gaines (21 + 5 rebounds), Ivan Ukhov (13), Andrejs Gražulis (11), Trek Maklin (11), Yanik Moreira (7 + 17 rebounds), Cody Miller-McIntyre (4 + 5 rebounds + 10 assists + 3 steals).

Head Coach «Astana» Mikhail Karpenko:
- Unfortunately, today we did not manage to play defense — we had a plan to act as aggressively as possible. Perhaps we managed to restrain the leader of our rivals McIntyre, but in general, we were soft-hearted and did not act in defense. We had only 4 team fouls in the first half, gave the opponent to feel the rhythm, to score, including in an early attack. The second half moved on in the same way, unfortunately, there were wrong decisions in the attack, we did not do a few important rebounds, and generally lost the game on our glass. All this led to a home defeat. The struggle for the playoffs continues, I hope we will make the right conclusions and move forward.

Head coach of «PARMA» Nikolas Masurs:
- We started right away with good energy. We could not realize the moments in fast breaks, but we did quite good in rebounds. The guys played very patiently and brought the ball in many situations to a good throw. In the end, I think we were quicker and still better in the details. I congratulate the fans of Perm, this is an important victory for us.

The next match «Astana» will hold on the, on April 1, the capital basketball players will meet with the Krasnodar basketball club «Lokomotiv Kuban» within the framework of the VTB United League.
