CSKA Moscow

CSKA Moscow established a new Final Four era defensive record in the second quarter of the first game at the 2012 Turkish Airlines Euroleague Final Four. The Russian champs limited Panathinaikos to 5 points, which represents the fewest points ever scored in a single quarter in a Final Four game. CSKA’s defensive efforts not carried the team back from a double-digit deficit, but eclipsed the previous mark of 6. That record was set in the semifinals of the 2003 Final Four in Barcelona, where Montepaschi Siena held Benetton Treviso to 6 points in the third quarter.
