Mike James, CSKA Moscow end Zalgiris Kaunas’ six-game EuroLeague winning streak

Mike James and CSKA Moscow put an end to the six-game winning streak of Zalgiris Kaunas in the EuroLeague.

James finished the game with 21 points and helped the Muscovites rally past the Lithuanians at home (83-73).

CSKA were in front by 13 at halftime (45-32), but Zalgiris came back and cut the deficit to three in the fourth quarter (60-57).

James made some big shots, though, and sealed the deal for the winners.

CSKA Moscow returned to the winning track in the EuroLeague and improved to 15-4.

On the other hand, Zalgiris Kaunas remained within the playoff zone, but dropped to 11-8.

Bayern Munich came back from a double-digit deficit and edged Zenit Saint Petersburg at home (82-80).

The Russians led by as many as 10 points in the game (27-37), but the Bavarians turned things around and tied the game (56-56).

In a hard-fought battle in the fourth quarter, the hosts stood tall and earned a crucial win.

Bayern improved to 12-7 in the EuroLeague standings, maintaining a top four push.

On the other hand, Zenit Saint Petersburg dropped to fifth place, at 11-6.

Panathinaikos relied on its defense and dominated ASVEL Villeurbanne at home on Wednesday night (88-71).

The “Greens” conceded just 29 points in the second half and snapped a three-game losing streak in the EuroLeague.

Nemanja Nedovic went for 33 points for the winners, while Giorgos Papagiannis added a career-high 18.

Panathinaikos improved to 6-12, whereas ASVEL dropped to 5-13.

However, both teams remained close to the bottom of the EuroLeague table and their qualification for the playoffs is in serious jeopardy.

Last but not least, the game between Real Madrid and Crvena Zvezda at Wizink Center had to be suspended.

Due to the extreme weather conditions in Spain, Zvezda could not arrive in Madrid for the game.

Therefore, EuroLeague Basketball was forced to suspend the contest, which will be rescheduled to a later date.
