Fenerbahce was unstoppable against UNICS Kazan and returned to the winning track in the EuroLeague in dominant fashion.

The Turks led from start to finish and cruised to an easy victory over the Russians. UNICS made its worst performance this season and suffered a heavy defeat (80-41).

Fenerbahce snapped a two-game losing streak in the EuroLeague and improved to 2-2. On the other hand, UNICS set several negative club records and dropped to 1-3.

Bayern Munich attempted a wild comeback in Saint Petersburg, but Zenit stood tall and earned a big home win. The Bavarians came back from a 15-point deficit in the first quarter (31-16) to take control (54-60).

Yet, the Russians took over in the fourth quarter and outscored their opponents 25-11 to seal the deal (79-71). The hosts now are at 3-1, whereas the visitors remained winless (0-4).

ASVEL Villeurbanne is no longer among the undefeated clubs in the EuroLeague. Round 4 saw the French suffer their first loss, as Maccabi Tel-Aviv earned the 85-93 road victory.

The Israelis led for the majority of the night and endured the comeback attempt of ASVEL in the final quarter. Maccabi snapped a two-game losing streak and now is at 2-2. On the contrary, the hosts have won three of their first four EuroLeague games (3-1).

Baskonia extended its winning streak to two games, thanks to its 86-90 victory over ALBA in Berlin. The Basques scored 52 points in the first half and led by as many as 27 to seal the deal.

The Germans attempted a comeback in the second half and outscored their opponents 47-28. Yet, it was not enough to give them the win.

ALBA dropped to 1-3 in the EuroLeague standings. Meanwhile, Baskonia improved to 2-2 and climbed higher on the table.
