«Astana» played another home game in the VTB United League, losing to UNICS Kazan.

The meeting ended with a score of 75:97. Standout players for the capital team were Royce Hamm (15 points, 6 rebounds), Karvel Anderson (14 points), Devin Davis (13 points, 6 rebounds), Adam Kunkel (12 points), and Felipe Hasse (11).
 

«First of all, I want to congratulate my players; they showed a solid and consistent game today. We started well defensively and played very focused, which resulted in a 15-point advantage at the end of the first half. In the third quarter, it was easier for us to score points, but we also had to reduce the intensity level. Astana is a good team and found opportunities to score. Nevertheless, we had no problems maintaining the advantage and winning,» said UNICS head coach Velimir Perasović after the game.

During halftime, Astana's general director, Samson Arakelyan, presented letters of appreciation to several volunteers who helped the club organize home games.

«Through the individuals who received letters of appreciation today, I want to thank everyone who supports the team, cheers, and believes! This season, we're setting attendance records thanks to you. The volunteers' assistance goes beyond their support from the stands: we manage to acquire new partners and launch marketing activities, thanks in part to the help of people who support the club and selflessly contribute to the development of the Astana basketball club,» said Samson Gevorgovich.

Kazakhstan National Ice Hockey forward Kirill Panyukov and «Maktaaral» footballer Ramazan Karimov both attended the game.

On December 15, the final home game of the season will take place against «Pari Nizhny Novgorod» in Astana. The game starts at 20:00, and tickets can be purchased on Ticketon and «Davai Poidem!» websites.
