It was a minimum task for the Army Men to win the game. The team remembered that the point difference is important and cannot be full satisfied in respect to this.

CSKA vs. Bayern Munich: 77-70 (+7)

CSKA: Micov (7 + 3 rb), Fridzon (5), Jackson (4), Pargo (5 + 4 as), Krstic (12), Weems (15 + 3 rb + 5 as), Kaun (10), Khryapa (9 + 4 rb + 6 as + 3 to + 4 pf), Hines (10 + 7 rb + 4 bs)…

Bayern: Troutman (13 + 7 rb), Hamann (4 as), Tompson (14 + 4 rb + 4 to), Staiger (5), Benzing (2), Djedovic (13 + 6 rb + 4 to), Delaney (9 + 4 rb), Idbihi (4), Taylor (7), Bryant (3 + 4 rb + 4 as + 3 to)…

Ettore Messina, CSKA head coach:
The game was different in comparison to the one we played in Munich. They had very good guard Djedovic back after injury and, vice versa, we lost Teodosic. We got nervous in the first half because of poor shooting percentage but played excellent third quarter. It does not happen so often when the team turns very difficult game into big lead. We had obvious problems against pressure and had trouble finding a shot but our work continues.

Svetislav Pesic, Bayern Munich head coach:
We cannot be unhappy with our game tonight. I think we represented ourselves in Moscow the way we wanted. Congratulations to CSKA, they played very strong defense throughout all game. The third quarter was a decisive one, we had some turnovers but I cannot say anything bad about my players. They were fighting and in parts of the game they demonstrated excellent basketball.

Sonny Weems, CSKA forward:
To me it’s really no matter what kind of points difference we play. We should play in the Final Four. It is the main goal we must be worried about to finish the Top-16 as a strong team. We have a very deep team, each person can do everything to hit the goal.
