Ozer hit a layup and Omer Unver knocked down a three-ball to bring Besiktas to within 41-25 But Garbajosa drained another long ball and the lead was 44-27 at the break.

Palacio opened the second half with a three-point play for Khimki. Ozer hit a layup and Chatman knocked down a triple and the lead was down to 15 points 47-32.

Chatman tried his best to keep Besiktas in the game with another three-pointer and Ozer’s lay-in made it 58-41. But Garbajosa hit again from long range and Fridzon’s foul shot had the lead back over 20 points – 62-41. Haluk Yildirim hit a three-ball for Besiktas but Mike Wilkinson scored five points over the rest of the quarter to give Khimki a 67-49 lead after three periods.

Shabalkin and Wilkinson hit baskets and then two Timofey Mozgov foul shots and another score pushed the lead to 83-56.
