Russian League champion 2011-12 - CSKA Moscow (photo pbleague.ru)Turkish Airlines Euroleague runner-up CSKA Moscow reiterated its dominance at home in the Russian League on Saturday by sweeping to its 10th consecutive domestic title by blasting Eurocup champion Khimki Moscow Region 75-90. The road win game CSKA a 3-0 sweep in the best-of-five finals. CSKA's accomplishment was all the more noteworthy because it played the entire series without Andrei Kirilenko, who was the Euroleague MVP this season. Nonetheless, CSKA had five double-figure scorers on Saturday and out-rebounded Khimki 31-22. CSKA roared ahead by 19-26 after one quarter and 37-48 at the half, but Khimki rallied after halftime to get within five points, 65-70, heading into the final quarter. As it had all series, CSKA dominated the final 10 minutes, allowing Khimki just 10 points while doubling that total itself. Alexey Shved led the winners with 18 points, while Nenad Krstic added 17 while Viktor Khryapa posted 14, 6 rebounds and 6 assists. Milos Teodosic had 13 points and 6 rebounds, while Jamont Gordon chipped in 10 points. CSKA made 12 of 21 three-point shots (57%), including 3 each by Shved and Teodosic. For Khimki, Vitaly Fridzon poured in 20 points and dished 5 assists. Kresimir Loncar followed with 17 points, 6 rebounds. Thomas Kelati added 13 points, 6 assists, while Zoran Planinic scored 10 points. Khimki, as Eurocup champion, will join CSKA in the Turkish Airlines Euroleague next season.
