Nymburk Posts 100+ Prior To Zenit Showdown

Nymburk defeated Vita at home, 111-51. The home team went up by 17 points in the 1st quarter and never looked back, smashing the Georgian visitors for their 16th win of the season.

Vita celebrated its first win of the season last week in the VTB United League, but had to play without its Americans on Tuesday in the Czech Republic. Not surprisingly, Nymburk sought to take advantage, pushing the tempo with frequent substitutions and quickly wearing down the visitors.

The first half belonged entirely to Ronen Ginzburg's club. Nymburk shot 60% from the field with only one turnover and enjoyed a 32-point edge at halftime, 56-24.

The Czechs turned to their bench in the second half and continued to score in bunches. Nymburk ultimately matched its club record for margin of victory (60, set earlier this season vs. Vita on the road), crushing the visiting Georgians, 111-51.

Five days from now, Nymburk hosts Zenit St. Petersburg in a game with big playoff implications. If nothing else, the Czechs proved today that they will be ready.
