Anadolu Efes and Valencia stunned Barcelona and CSKA Moscow on Thursday night to maintain a playoff push in the EuroLeague.
We watched two very good games in EuroLeague.
Barcelona – Anadolu Efes
This game was important for both sides, but it was a little bit more important for Efes. Because the playoff race is very tight. Today, Efes won the game (86-88) and they are in the top eight for now (13-10).
On the other hand, Barcelona lost the game, but they are still the top team in the EuroLeague (17-7). For sure, if they won the game, the win difference with CSKA would be two victories.
Valencia – CSKA
What a game! There was a double overtime in the contest. Mike James did not succeed in the last offense of CSKA. In this way, Valencia took a big win over the Muscovites (105-103).
CSKA could win the game despite missing players but they couldn’t. Mike had 37 points, seven assists, and three rebounds.
On the other side, Nikola Kalinic and Klemen Prepelic both scored 22 points. Thus, Valencia has 12 wins and 12 losses, and CSKA has 16 wins and eight losses.
