The upcoming games will be the third and fourth match in the face-to-face confrontation between “Astana” and “Aktobe”, and it will also be the first time that the capital team will play in the city of Aktobe. The first two matches between our guys and Aktobe team took place in Nur Sultan on November 11 and 12. In those two games, “Astana” completely dominated in the game and won two convincing victories — 92:63 and 116:50. Since that time, “Aktobe” had 4 more matches: in the series with “Senigorye” they lost twice, although they struggled hard, and in the series with “Tobol” in the first game the red-and-white frayed Kostanay’s nerves, losing only 6 points, and lost the pot in the second game. Since the start of the season, the team from Aktobe has spent a total of 12 games, winning only 2. Of the 10 defeats, they lost 4 times to “Barsy Atyrau”, but in one game they were close to winning, losing only 4 points, they also lost to «Astana» twice,  to «Sinegorye” and to “Tobol”. As for the victories, they won in a series with “Caspian”.
 

Leaders of the rivals: Kazakhstan defender Sergey Bormatenkov, who, perhaps, has already become one of the symbols of the team, is also the most effective and efficient player in the team, gaining an average of 11 points per match. At the same time, Sergey is also ahead of teammates in rebounds and steals. Russian forward Vladislav Gusak, whose average performance is 10.7 points per game, also deserves special attention. Kazakh center Gleb Zhukov and Kazakhstani guard Ibrahim Konysov and Aydarkhan Toktarov often play in the starting five. The following Kazakhstan players a guard Temirlan Dzhunusov, a forward Konstantin Neff and a center Konstantin Marzan can also be attributed to the base players.
 
Changes in the roster: from the previous two-match series, held in Nur-Sultan in mid-November, the roster of our rivals has not changed at all.
 
Tournament position: “Aktobe” is not included in the leaders of the National League and occupies the fifth, penultimate line of the standings. Regardless of the results of these games, their place in the table will not change. Our team after 10 games in the National League confidently occupy the first line, winning all of their matches.

The first-ever visit of the Presidential Basketball Club «Astana» in Aktobe ended with a confident victory for the wards of Emil Rajkovic.

Two previous games that took place in Nur-Sultan ended with a confident victory for the capital's team, which was a favorite on the rivals' court as well. Among imports playing today, Dusan Ristic and Isaiah Whitehead joined the game. Our guys started the game much more confidently than their rivals and set a frantic pace in the game. Red-and-white did not completely cope with the capital basketball players in the first five minutes, which is why our advantage in the first half of the first quarter was already a decent 14 points. Further, the game took place in a more equal confrontation, and the distance between the teams until the end of the first ten minutes did not change much. “Astana” in the first quarter won 16 points, making a powerful step to win this game. However, “Aktobe” was not going to give up in the second period, having begun to gradually bridge the gap. In five minutes, Aktobe players reduced the gap by five points. However, the activity of the hosts gave a positive effect to the team of Emil Rajkovic, who in the remaining time of the first half of the match looked more confident than their rivals and went on a long break with an advantage of 20 points — 31:51.



After a long break, our rivals completely wilted and could not return to the game for five minutes. During this time, the basketball players of “Astana” significantly increased their advantage, which exceeded thirty points. But in the second half of the third quarter, the hosts began to get a game, and they almost won back 10 points. But in the end, they could not control our guys who felt very comfortable before the fourth quarter with a margin of 29 points. In this situation, it was too optimistic to expect an intrigue in the game, and the hosts' chances for a comeback in the match were vanishing. And yet, our rivals tried to sugar-cover the bitter truth of the impending defeat and scored 6 points in five minutes, but before the end of the match our guys regained their original advantage and eventually won another — the third victory over the team from Aktobe — 65:94 (13:29, 18: 22, 16:25, 18:18).

In this game, “Astana” from the very beginning presented its claim to victory and did not leave any particular chances to the hosts. “Astana” is confidently leading the standings, while “Aktobe” is only on the fifth line.



Most productive:
  • “Astana” — the most effective player in the match was Dusan Ristic, who scored 16 points and 9 rebounds. Alexander Zhigulin also got a double-double — 17 points and 10 rebounds. Well, the best in our lineup for assists and steals was Isaiah Whitehead — 7 points, 11 assists, 4 steals.
  • «Aktobe” - the main contribution to the result of our rivals was made by Temirlan Dzhunusov — 14 points, 8 assists, and 6 steals, Konstantin Marzan — 15 points and 8 rebounds.

Next match: tomorrow, on December 2, the final game between «Astana» and «Aktobe» will take place in the National League regular season. The match starts at 20:00, Nur-Sultan time.
