THE TAKE

The defending champs meet one of their oldest rivals once again. CSKA pounded Maccabi by 19 when they met last month in Moscow, but the Israeli champs seem to be in much better form now. Maccabi’s strength is in its backcourt, where swingman Sylven Landesberg, who comes off a career-best performance, and Yogev Ohayon, who set a club record with 8 steals last week, team with former CSKA guard Jeremy Pargo. CSKA hopes to have Milos Teodosic back to run the show alongside Aaron Jackson, Sonny Weems, Nando De Colo and Vitaly Fridzon. Maccabi will need Alex Tyus and Jake Cohen to step up if power forward Brian Randle remains sidelined. Sasha Kaun is always at his best for CSKA against Maccabi and he has Kyle Hines and Andrey Vorontsevich to bang alongside. The hosts will look to Sofoklis Schortsanitis to handle the workload inside and for veteran forward Devin Smith, who sat out the previous game against CSKA, to provide the leadership for Maccabi to defend its home court.

Quotes Head Coaches

ITOUDIS, DIMITRIS
CSKA Moscow
"We don’t forget that we play against the defending champions and we expect a difficult game in the great basketball atmosphere of Nokia Arena. Maccabi is playing well lately taking 3 important road victories in the last 4 Euroleague games. Pargo and Ohayon are playing well, Landesberg is hitting big shots, Haynes adds more threat from the perimeter together with versatile wingman Smith. Sofo is definitely a main focus under the basket but we also have to face Tyus, a different type of center who is playing above the rim and missed the trip to Moscow. As I said we expect a real basketball battle and we will try hard to take the win home."

Players

WEEMS, SONNY
CSKA Moscow
"As usually our only intention is to go there and win. Though we understand it won't be that easy. They are extra motivated after the big loss in Moscow, they need to fight in every game to insure their position in the Top 16 and they are playing at home. Still I think we are in good shape, on a roll, and we are ready to continue playing well."
