After the victory over Yenisei (106:94), PARMA secured fifth place in the Top 6. And a day earlier it became clear that Lokomotiv Kuban would finish fourth in the regular season. Thus, it is the Permians who the Krasnodar team will face in the 1/4 finals.

In general, these teams layed each other 20 times. And only three games were won by PARMA (two this season, another one in December 2020). They also met in the playoffs once – it was the quarterfinals of the 2021/22 season, which Loko won with a “sweep” – 3-0.

The first two games of the quarterfinals will take place in Krasnodar and will begin at April 22 or 23 – the exact schedule will be announced by the VTB United League by the end of this week. Then the series will move to Perm. To reach the semi-finals one need to win three times. Ticket sales for Loko home playoffs games will start as soon as the dates become confirmed.
