Justin Gray collected 17 points and 5 assists and Arthur Lee had 16 points, 4 assists and 4 steals in a losing effort. Ladislav Sokolovsky chipped in 10 points, but it was not enough. Nymburk, which dropped to 1-1 in the group, could not take advantage of Hemofarm shooting just 3-of-17 (17%) from long range. Nymburk next faces iurbentia Bilbao at home.

Markovic opened the scoring for the hosts and Milos Bozovic made it 4-0. Blake Schilb scored back-to-back baskets to knot the game early. And another Schilb score evened the contest at 8-8. Gray knocked down a three-pointer and Nymburk had its first lead of the game at 11-13. And another Gray triple made it 13-16. But Markovic hit a layup and three-pointer to give Hemofarm back the lead before Radek Necas tied it once again at 20-20 after one period. Necas scored two straight baskets to start the second quarter, putting the guests ahead 20-24. But that lead vanished after a Marjanovic dunk and layup. And Nebojsa Joksimovic made 2 foul shots and a basket to complete an 8-0 run for a 28-24 advantage. Nymburk went four minutes without a basket until Ales Chan scored. But Marjanovic hit for 5 points in a 9-0 Hemofarm run to push the lead to 37-26 – completing a 17-2 surge. Lee tried to bring his team back with 6 points the rest of the quarter, but Milos Borisov knocked down a three-pointer in helping the hosts to a 42-34 lead at the break.

Sokolovsky opened the second half for the guests and then Goran Jagodnik knocked down a triple to pull Nymburk within 44-39. But Marjanovic converted a three-point play and Boris Pavkovic nailed a three-ball and the Hemofarm lead was up to 52-39. Petr Benda tried everything he could to keep his team in the game with two baskets and Jagodnik made 3 foul shots to bring the deficit back to 56-46. But Marjanovic and Markovic both dunked and added another basket as the lead was still 64-50 after three periods. Markovic hit another to start the final quarter and Macvan's three-point play made it 69-50. The Czech champs refused to go down without a fight as Gray and Schilb scored buckets and Sokolovsky and Gray knocked down triples and the margin was 73-60. And it was only 75-65 after Sokolovsky's next long ball late in the game. Macvan hit a big basket and Pavkovic made a foul shot to push the lead back to 78-65. But Michal Kremen knocked down a triple and Lee scored after a steal and the deficit was 78-70 with just more than a minute left. Gray's layup made it 80-72 with less than a minute to play, but Markovic answered with a layup of his own to finish off Nymburk.

"It was so heavy to play two important games in four days, with Red Star in the Adriatic League and with Nymburk in the Eurocup. We were 19 points ahead in one moment of the tonight's game and I think it could have been even more. But we had too many turnovers in the first half. Anyway I am satisfied with the win."
KATZURIN, MULI
CEZ Nymburk
"Hemofarm played better and they deserved the win. We had many problems both in defense and offense in the second period as in third period both teams made lot mistakes. Our problem was that we had no solution to stop Boban Marjanovic."

"I am happy we booked our first win in the Eurocup. Our group is very strong and each win means a lot. The key for the win was our aggressiveness."
