CSKA Moscow wins the VTB League

CSKA Moscow beat UNICS Kazan 89-81 and swept the final series of the VTB League 3-0.

CSKA dominated the game from the start and built a maximum lead of 17 points in the third quarter. Just when everybody thought that CSKA could cruise control to another title, UNICS Kazan bounced back.

The visitors from Kazan went on a 9-0 run and CSKA went three full minutes without scoring. All of a sudden their lead had shrunk to only two points (77-75).

In the following minutes, the teams exchanged only turnovers and steals, but at the end of the quarter, Will Clyburn exploded for five straight points, 84-75. That moment was fatal for UNICS, as they answered only with a Nate Wolters shot. Having regained a comfortable lead, CSKA took the title for good.
