The Take

The teams face each other for the first time ever in the Game of the Week. Jamon Gordon of Darussafaka and Milos Teodosic of CSKA, who were teammates with Olympiacos in the 2010-11 season, are set to guard each other in this exciting game. Teodosic will get help from Aaron Jackson at point guard, who will go against experienced playmaker Ender Arslan and newly signed combo guard, Scottie Wilbekin. CSKA will try to keep running its offense through Nando De Colo, who is in great shape recently, but has other options at the wings in Nikita Kurbanov, Vitaly Fridzon and Cory Higgins. De Colo will go against his former CSKA teammate Manuchar Markoishvili, Higgins will not have it easy against all-around swingman Reggie Redding while Kurbanov will not have it easy against do-it-all Emir Preldzic. Both teams have deep frontcourts, as Darussafaka can open the floor with Milko Bjelica and Luke Harangody to use a more powerful lineup with Semih Erden, Oguz Savas and Marcus Slaughter. Kyle Hines and Andrei Vorontsevich will see most playing time around the baskets for CSKA along with Victor Khryapa and Demetris Nichols. Expect a physical, intense game in Istanbul.

Quotes Head Coaches

Darussafaka Dogus Istanbul
"We will play our first ever game in our brand new Volkswagen Arena. We are all surely very excited to play there. We need to give our best on the court joining the excitement and out fighting spirit. I’m expecting an unprecedented support from the fans as well. At the same time, we’ll play against the one the strongest teams in Europe. CSKA have a deep and very experienced roster. They have three good players in each position. Therefore, we need to perform well as a unit rather taking measures for individual players."
CSKA Moscow
"Our opponents have several players with many Euroleague seasons under their belts. They are experienced and they’ve just recently signed a new player – that tells a lot about their plans and ambitions. Darussafaka plays well in the beginning of the season, especially at home so we expect a tough game. Still I like how our practices go, how the team works and we will go there in right mood."


Darussafaka Dogus Istanbul
"I liked very much both the colors and the ambiance of our new Volkswagen Arena. It’s a quite good arena for a team as ambitious as ours. It will be our new strength in the Turkish Airlines Euroleague. I wish more people come and cheer for us. For me, I’m trying to bring my energy onto the court. As long as I’m able to contribute to defense then the scroring chances will come for me as well. My main aim to put 100 % effort on the court. CSKA’s roster, one by one, is one of the best in Europe. I played for them last season and they are in a very high level in terms of organization. The key point for this game will be limiting their offense. If we don’t give them easy layups than we might have a chance to win the game."
CSKA Moscow
"Darussafaka is probably the strongest team in the initial part of our Euroleague season. We are taking the opponents very seriously as usual and we practice hard. I think everyone on the team feels fine and we will do our best to continue winning."

CSKA Moscow kept its undefeated record intact with a comfortable 75-80 road win over Darussafaka Dogus Istanbul on Thursday. CSKA improved to 4-0, while Darussafaka dropped to 1-3 in Group D. Darussafaka jumped to an early lead, but CSKA replied with a 0-16 run that bridged the first and second quarters and opened a 19-29 lead. Darussafaka closed to 43-48 at halftime, but it was all CSKA in the third quarter as Nando De Colo and Milos Teodosic led the visitors to a 52-70 advantage after three quarters. Darussafaka attempted a late rally, but did not get closer than 7 points until the final possession. Teodosic finished with 22 points and 9 assists and De Colo scored 19 points with 5 rebounds in victory. Kyle Hines had 9 points and 6 rebounds for CSKA.

De Colo hit a jumper to extend CSKA's run and lead, before Manuchar Markoishvili hit a baseline jumper to stop the leak.

Oguz Savas made a short baseline jump shot and traded foul shots with Teodosic. In the final minute of the half, Preldzic beat the shot-clock with a triple, but Aaron Jackson drove to bank in a runner for a 43-48 halftime advantage.

Kravtsov split free throws, Nikita Kurbanov scored a baseline jumper on a fast break and Vorontsevich banked in a runner as CSKA extended the margin to 10.

After a timeout, Gordon scored a short jumper, but Teodosic bettered it with a triple. Slaughter scored inside to cut the difference to 49-60. Teodosic answered by making another three-pointer and Kurbanov’s free throws extended the margin to 16 points. Slaughter made a pair of foul shots for the hosts, but CSKA was in control.

Fourth quarter: CSKA holds of Darussafaka rally

De Colo answered with a reverse layup, but Gordon made a driving layup of his own that cut the deficit to 57-74. A triple from Arslan and a fastbreak layup from Harangody made it 62-74 and prompted visiting coach Dimitris Itoudis to call a timeout. After a timeout, Harangody scored a pair of layups that made it 66-74, before Jackson made a runner that snapped an 11-0 run. Slaughter converted a three-point play that got the hosts within 69-76 with 2:15 to go, but 70 seconds later, Teodosic drove for a layup to make it 69-79 and essentially seal the outcome.

CSKA Moscow
"They played at home. They pressured us. They were on the level of the foul and forced some turnovers out of us. This is something we have to talk about definitely. It was our biggest number so far. We did some unforced errors, errors we didn't have to make. We gave them opportunities to come back, for sure. When we had fouls to give in the bonus, we gave up a three-pointer, a basket-and-one, and another basket-and-one. So those are nine points we gave up with three fouls to use. We are mature and experienced enough to handle such situations, but congratulations to Darussafaka, they kept coming back. It's an amazing crowd and a new arena. I think overall we were the better team on court and deserved to win. So congratulations to my players for another Euroleague win, despite the absences we have. And we do miss a lot of players."


Darussafaka Dogus Istanbul
“We were leading after the first seven minutes. Then we made some small mistakes and turned the ball over. That gave CSKA easy layups and fastbreak points. We scored 43 points in the first half. But we let them run on the court at the end of first and at the beginning of third quarter. We did get back in the game and closed the gap in final quarter. It’s bad to lose that game, but we never give up. That shows our character.”
CSKA Moscow
"It was a very important win for us. Darussafaka is a very good team. They made a good first half. It was hard for us to play here, so I am happy we won tonight. This is another game we should win. We lost 11 balls in the first half. That's the reason we didn't have a bigger advantage at halftime. In the second half. we played much better as a team and that's the reason we won."
