CSKA won the second game of the quarterfinals. The team managed to come ahead of the rival only in the end of the first quarter and was up by 10 by the half time.

CSKA – Spartak St.Petersburg: 90-63

Ettore Messina, CSKA head coach:

- It took us 20 minutes to find the right rhythm for the game. It is important that we have two wins before going to Athens. As the next week we would be fully concentrated on the Euroleague. Alexey Savrasenko entered the game after the injury tonight and it is good we could provide him some minutes. I hope that we would have Oskar Torres back before the Final Four in the nearest future. Right now he needs two more days to recover.
