Led by Darius Thomas, who had 15 of his 23 points in the first half, and Errick McCollum who finished with 17, the visitors built a slim advantage that lasted until the first minutes of the last quarter, 72-76.

Hornsby opened fire with 10 points in 3 minutes, which included a couple of threes and a long jumper, to make it all square, 82-82, with 6 minutes remaining. Once Lokomotiv managed to stop him, it was time for Cummings, who stepped onto the floor to tie it again, 84-84, and later at 90-90 entering the last minute. A key three-pointer with just 17 seconds remaining put Metropolitans in charge for good as Thompson’s miss from deep on the next possession ended up in Cummings’s hands and turned into a couple of free throws that secured the win for the home team.
