CSKA won the sixth game of Russian Superleague. The team that used to be the main Championship contender - Ural Great Perm – this time surpriseв Ettore Messina squad with tough defense, great shots of the guards and efforts to win.

Ural Great - CSKA: 69-75

Ettore Messina, CSKA head coach:

- We played well in the defense in the first half, but in the second we put the result of the game in danger. It is very hard to play in Perm every time we come here. We defended Ural Great tall players well in the first half and played rather good offence. I want to thank Jon Robert Holden for taking responsibility and leadership in the end of the game. And I want to congratulate Ural Great with their aggressive game and to wish them luck in the future.
