CSKA Moscow were victorious (77-78) in a EuroLeague classic against Fenerbahce. CSKA survived in a hard-fought game, where three players of Fenerbahce scored 16+ points.

Will Clyburn played a crucial part for the visitors posting 26 points, along with six rebounds. The veteran forward made a crucial three with 26 seconds remaining in regulation to send the game in overtime.

With the game coming to an end, Brown put Fenerbahce in front (77-75) with two made free throws, with 21 seconds until the end of the OT.

However, CSKA leaned once again on its best player to deliver the final ‘blow’, as Clyburn made a clutch shot and a free throw to win the game four seconds before the end of the OT.

Lorenzo Brown, who had 16 points and eight assists in the contest, missed the chance to push his team to the victory in the last seconds of the OT, with Fenerbahce conceding its first defeat in the regular season.

On the other hand, Dimitris Itoudis’ team improved to 2-1.
