Sonny Weems took matters into his own hands down the stretch, exploding for the go-ahead dunk in the dying seconds of the VTB League game against Khimki to give Zalgiris a 95-94 (24-23, 22-25, 25-28, 24-18) lead, which proved to be victorious.
The Kaunas crowd was heavily disgruntled by the referees throughout the game, but the inappropriate chants towards the officials were forgotten with a massive eruption in Zalgiris Arena after Weems threw it down with 3.9 seconds remaining to give Zalgiris the win.
Despite having some time left on the clock, Khimki could not get a decent look at the basket, as their last possession ended by Zoran Planinic firing from almost the halfway line.
The hero of the night Weems led Zalgiris in scoring with 25 points, Marko Popovic had 19, while Mantas Kalnietis finished with 14 points.
Thomas Kelati had a game-high 31 point for Khimki, Planinic scored 14 while Matt Nielsen and Sergei Monya had 13 points each.
