After Ivan Raut opened the game for Unicaja with a three-pointer, Andrianov and Trostin scored to give CSKA its first advantage 4-3. The lead switched hands the next five scores with Sow making it 8-9. An Ignacio Rosa free throw and Franco Acosta three-point play pushed the margin to 8-13. Trostin answered with a three-pointer for CSKA only to see Sow score and assist on the final two scores of the quarter which ended with Unicaja up 11-17. Trujillo’s put-back started the second quarter and increased the advantage to 8 points, 11-19. CSKA came up with a big 16-3 spurt with Andrianov and Alekandr Ershov each hitting a three-pointer and combining for 14 points to go up 27-22.

CSKA did not give up with Andrianov hitting a three-ball and Lopatin scoring 4 points as the Russian club trailed 48-54 after 30 minutes. Sow and Aguilar tallied to start the fourth quarter and Unicaja led 48-58. But Konstantin Shevchuk punched back with back-to-back three-pointers and Andrianov trimmed the margin to 56-60. Unicaja called a time out and created problems for CSKA’s offense, which missed its next 8 shots and turned the ball over twice over the next 5:38 minutes while Unicaja managed the final decisive 0-8 run for a 56-68 lead with 1:15 minutes remaining.
