Nikola Milutinov made his best performance of the season and helped CSKA Moscow claim its fifth straight EuroLeague win (81-89).

The Serbian big man went for a season-high 18 points (on 8/8 shooting), along with eight rebounds, for the winners, while Mike James added 25.

Jalen Reynolds had a personal-best 18 points for the losing squad and Wade Baldwin IV tied his career-high with 19 points.

The Bavarians led by three at halftime (39-36), yet the Muscovites took over in the second half, outscored their opponents 42-53 and sealed the deal.

Both teams now have identical records (7-3).
