16/04/2015 19:00 – CSKA Moscow vs Panathinaikos Athens
The home side set about their task on Tuesday in the strongest possible manner and it was a record breaking night for the Moscow side in their opening game against Panathinaikos. They will be confident of making it 2-0 in the series and if they can show the kind of form they showed in the second quarter on Tuesday night, they will grab this lead with a minimum of fuss and effort.
They ran up a 27-6 scoring run against the Greek side, giving them a 29 point lead at the halfway mark. Over the course of the game, CSKA Moscow offered up 27 assists, which is a new record in the playoffs. Every CSKA Moscow player scored during the game and Milos Teodosic offered up 18 points and 9 assists. On the other hand, if Panathinaikos are looking to achieve anything in this game, they will need Nikos Pappas to show the same sort of form, as he offered up 16 points for the away team on Tuesday.
There should be no issue of fatigue for this game as both sets of teams rotated well on Tuesday, with no CSKA Moscow player spending more than 22 minutes on the court. As for Panathinaikos, their top scorer Pappas started on the bench so they will be looking for some key players to step up in this game.
With the opening win in this series of games, CSKA Moscow has notched up a 23-2 record, which is very impressive. The Moscow side grabbed a 10-0 in the regular season and they boasted of a 12-2 in the Top 16.
