Vitaliy Fridzon's 3-pointer with four seconds left gave Russia a 75-74 victory over Brazil, keeping the Russians unbeaten in the Olympic men's basketball tournament.
The Russians blew an 11-point lead, falling behind 74-72 on Marcelo Huertas' layup with 6.1 seconds left. Russia called timeout and threw the ball into Fridzon along the left corner, who knocked down the jumper while appearing to have his leg hit as he was shooting.
Andrei Kirilenko scored 19 points and Timofey Mozgov had 18 for Russia (3-0), but it was Alexei Shved who led the Russians' late rally after they fell behind by five with under two minutes left. Shved, headed to the Minnesota Timberwolves along with Kirilenko, finished with 17 points.
Leandro Barbosa scored 16 points and Larry Taylor had 12 for Brazil (2-1). Nene finished with eight points and 10 rebounds.
