Cory Higgins with 23 points was the top scorer of the winners, however once more Teodosic after missing one game, stole the show with 16 points and 11 assists making everything look easy and providing some amazing passes. CSKA played without Nando De Colo and Aaron Jackson.
For the guests Victor Claver had 17 points and Petteri Koponen with 13 were the only scorers in double digits. The defense of the “army team” made all the difference as Barcelona finished the game with 24 turnovers, a pretty bad number against the defending Euroleague champions. CSKA Moscow managed to contain Tyrese Rice to 9 points and 1 assists, and the whole offensive game of Barcelona was disrupted.
Despite a 24-11 advantage after the first quarter for the hosts, Barca made its come back, trailed just by two points (44-42) at halftime and got a 47-44 lead in the 23rd minute. However that changed quickly, CSKA got the lead back and by keeping CSKA in just 7 points during the first 8 minutes of the last quarter got an easy win at the end.
