EuroLeague preseason: Milan needs overtime to grab second win

AX Armani Exchange Milan collected its second victory in as many days at the start of the preseason for Euroleague Basketball with an 81-78 overtime win Friday night over Umana Reyer Venice at the traditional City of Cagliari tournament. The Turkish Airlines EuroLeague team Milan survived a tough battle over the 7DAYS EuroCup side Reyer as Kevin Punter led the way with 19 points and Kyle Hines had 10 points. 

The game was tight in the early going and the score was even 15-15 after 10 minutes. Milan started to open a gap in the second quarter and the lead was 40-31 at the break. Milan came out strong in the second half and increased the gap to 45-31 early in the third quarter. Stefano Tonut helped get Reyer back into the game and Milan's lead was down to 55-49 after 30 minutes. The contest was tied 62-62 midway through the fourth quarter and Milan fell behind briefly. Two free throws from Sergio Rodriguez put Milan ahead 70-67 with just over a minute to play in regulation. But Michael Bramos nailed a three-pointer with 7 seconds left to even the game 72-72 and send it to overtime. Milan was able to pull ahead 79-74 and Punter showed his class, hitting two free throws with 56 seconds remaining for an 81-76 advantage. And Milan only secured the win when Valerio Mazzloa's three-point attempt at the buzzer was off target. Bramos paced Reyer with 18 points in the loss.
