The day of the Moscow derby CSKA- Dynamo was also the 90th celebration of the Day of Police. Dynamo presented narrow 82-80 win to their former sports club owners.

CSKA vs. Dynamo: 80-82

Svetislav Pesic squad did not bring any surprise to CSKA. But put maximum effort on the defense. It was the right decision as only early in the third quarter the Army club got 10 points advantage. All the other time it was close game of extremely high tempo.

Ettore Messina, CSKA head coach:

- The result of the game is right. We could have won but Dynamo deserved the win more. We were undisciplined in the defense especially in the last 3 minutes. The same as it was in Slovenia. We had two options in the last possession but the general idea was to bring the ball to Langdon. The problem was execution.
