2017-18Regular SeasonRound 23


After a week off in which many clubs competed in domestic cups, the continent’s premier basketball league returns with Round 23. Thursday’s first game will see CSKA Moscow host Baskonia Vitoria Gasteiz in a repeat of their playoff series from last season which CSKA swept. CSKA has won 12 straight home games against Baskonia; the last time it lost to Baskonia in Moscow was in the semifinal of the 2005 Final Four. The round concludes with another doozy as FC Barcelona Lassa hosts archrival Real Madrid in the latest El Clasico.
