With six players scoring in double figures, CSKA Moscow routed Zielona Gora 105 – 71 at home to register its second straight VTB League win.

CSKA held the upper hand from start to finish and turned the game into the blowout in the fourth quarter by dominating their opponents 33 – 14. Zielona Gora, that played its first VTB game this season, had problems stopping the CSKA offense throughout the match and crumbled in the last period.

Tornike Shengelia led CSKA’s scorers with 14 points while also dishing out five assists. Daniel Hackett had 13 points and five assists while former Zielona Gora player Iffe Lundberg was an unwelcoming host by “killing” his previous team with 12 points, 10 assists and five rebounds. Nikita Kurbanov scored 12 points, Marius Grigonis dropped 10 points and Nikola Milutinov finished the game with 10 points plus five boards.

Jaroslaw Zyskowski (14 points) and Nemanja Nedanic (12 points) stood out from Zielona Gora.

In St. Petersburg, Zenit defeated Kalev Tallinn 75 – 60 behind 27 points (5-6 3-pointers) and 10 rebounds by Jordan Mickey.
