Even without David Vanterpool CSKA managed to win the game against Zalgiris though the team had several hard minutes in the 3rd quarter.

CSKA - Zalgiris: 88-72

Ettore Messina, CSKA head coach:
- Zalgiris played without Popovic, on our side we missed Vanterpool for all of the game and Smodis for the most part as he did not feel well tonight. Both teams had a chance to play young players and they showed some good performance. On our side it was also the solid game of David Andersen. In the 3rd quarter we lost our concentration for a while and let Zalgiris to score several 3-pointers. But then we played focused and right now we are very close to the top position in the group.

Rimantas Grygas, Zalgiris head coach:

- We suffer a lot from our turnovers. It is one of our main problems. Tonight we made as many as 17. But we show good playing discipline until the moment we even the score. After that our young players are not so focused on the defense, they want to show something in the offense and because of the reason we are loosing the leadership. The game in general was very similar to the one we played against Winterthur. We miss Popovic a lot.
