CSKA won the third game at the NBA Europe Live Tour. The team managed to overscore the Euroleague runner-up Maccabi 90-81. The rival for the last game would be determined in several hours in the game Philadelphia 76 – Phoenix Suns.

CSKA - Maccabi: 90-81

Ettore Messina, CSKA head coach
- I am satisfied with the game as the whole. We played a very good first half but after the half time break started to make the mistakes in defense. We did not receive much help from our bench and this made me keep the leaders of the team in the game until the last minutes. On the other hand in the last minutes we managed to keep their pressure. And that is good it means we were kept the good concentration until the very end of the game.
