In a tough battle with more than 30 lead changes, Nando De Colo was unstoppable and helped CSKA Moscow rally past Barcelona (76-84).

The French guard finished the game with 25 points (on a career-high 7/10 from beyond the arc) and let the Muscovites come back from a nine-point deficit in the third quarter (59-50) and win the game.

Until then, no team could take a significant advantage (13-13, 20-20, 41-44), with the Catalans making a great start in the second half (59-50).

However, the Russians took over in the last 13 minutes of the game and went on a 10-27 run to turn things around and never look back (69-77).

Apart from De Colo, Nikita Kurbanov stood out for the winners, as he scored 17 points.

Victor Calver (17 points) and Kevin Seraphin (14 points) were the best players of the losing squad.

CSKA Moscow improved to 15-5, whereas Barcelona dropped to 11-9.
