In the Euroleague first game of the season against Nanterre our team had to overcome 14-point deficit and to win in the last seconds.

JSF Nanterre vs. CSKA: 59-62 (+3)

Ettore Messina, CSKA head coach:
The team chemistry was the main factor tonight. Nanterres chemistry is good, proven, it helped the team to win last season. We are still building ours after some changes on key positions. Hopefully in the closest months everyone will understand why he goes out, why he goes in, when to shoot, when to pass. Currently the physical and technical talent is downed to zero. Under the circumstances I am happy how we played in the second half. I had to shorten the rotation to find the players who can provide the result right now. I want to say compliments to the opponents coach, team, fans. We did not turn the ball over too much but they slowed the game down, used 24 seconds, rebounded well. Most of our turnovers were made in the span which Nanterre won 18-3. Its important that we did not panic at the time.
