The early scoring was evenly shared, as Nikita Kurbanov scored 5 fast points for CSKA while a three-point play from Papapetrou helped keep Panathinaikos level, 7-7. Hackett and Jeremy Evans traded triples and a flurry of free throws were followed by a threeball from Ivan Ukhov for a 13-17 CSKA lead. Georgios Papagiannis dunked-and-one to help get the hosts ahead, but Grigonis hit a four-point play and a layup from Bolomboy made it 20-26 after ten minutes. Iffe Lundberg and Grigonis opened the second quarter with three-pointers, taking the lead into double digits, as Panathinaikos remained scoreless for nearly seven minutes. Bolomboy slammed a one-handed alley-oop and Lundberg made another three for a 20-37 lead. Hackett also struck from deep to complete a 0-23 run, before two baskets from Howard Sant-Roos revived the hosts. Triples from Johannes Voigtmann and Hackett kept CSKA comfortable, 26-48, and Shengelia added a layup-and-one. Shengelia, Voigtmann and Grigonis netted close to the basket, and Hackett added his fourth triple to give CSKA a 33-60 halftime lead.
Nikola Milutinov opened the second half with a transition dunk, but two scores from Papapetrou and a Papagiannis slam sparked Panathinaikos. Three-pointers from Shengelia, Grigonis and Ukhov reasserted CSKA’s dominance, 41-71, midway through the third.
