Turkish Airlines EuroLeague preseason: Khimki, CSKA win Gomelsky Cup semis

The Alexander Gomelsky Cup final will pit the top teams from the Russian capital against one another after CSKA Moscow and Khimki Moscow Region both won their semifinals on Wednesday. Alexey Shved came up big again for Khimki in a 73-70 victory over Panathinaikos Superfoods Athens in the first semifinal. Shved produced 18 points and 5 assists – including 5 points, an assist and a steal in the final two minutes. His backcourt mate Stefan Markovic added 12 points and 6 assists, Charles Jenkins also scored 12 and Anthony Gill netted 10 points, including the go-ahead bucket. Marcus Denmon paced Panathinaikos with 22 points on 5-of-6 three-point shooting and Chris Singleton scored 18. Khimki outrebounded Panathinaikos 40-22. The Greens started perfectly with the game’s first 10 points, but Khimki rallied back to within 1 before Denmon put Panathinaikos ahead 16-19 after 10 minutes. Khimki continued its good form into the second quarter and took its first lead, 22-21, on a triple by Shved. The game remained close after that with Panathinaikos ahead 32-36 at halftime and Khimki up 53-52 through three quarters. Back-to-back threes by Denmon sent Panathinaikos to a 58-63 advantage, but Shved got Khimki back within 1 in the final minute, then assisted Gill on the go-ahead basket and came up with a steal in the closing seconds before Jenkins’s free throws sealed the victory. CSKA held off Darussafaka Istanbul 81-75 led by its star-studded backcourt. Nando De Colo led all scorers with 19 points, Sergio Rodriguez tallied 13 points and 7 assists, Cory Higgins added 12 points and Kyle Hines 11. JaJuan Johnson and James Bell scored 16 apiece for Darussafaka and Will Cummings scored 14. De Colo took charge early to give CSKA an 11-7 lead, but Johnson and Cummings helped Darussafaka to even the score at 21-21 after 10 minutes. Will Clyburn helped CSKA regain control and the hosts soared to 40-32 and though Darussafaka again closed the gap, CSKA led 46-42 at the break. Johnson helped the visitors climb to within 51-50 early in the third quarter, however threes by Rodriguez, De Colo and Semen Antonov set the stage for Higgins to give CSKA its first double digit lead with a pair of free throws, 64-54. Clyburn converted a three-point play to extend the margin to 72-60 in the fourth and CSKA cruised the rest of the way. Fenerbahce Dogus Istanbul won for the fourth night in a row on the road, defeating Borac Cacak 81-93. Jan Vesely and Sinan Guler led a balanced attack with 12 points each, Jason Thompson and Nicolo Melli contributed 11 apiece and Gigi Datome added 10. Marko Marinovic netted 17 points in defeat.
