Nemanja Nedovic led Panathinaikos to a big road win over Armani Milano (77-80), in his first EuroLeague game against his former team.

The Serbian guard went for a game-high 16 points and forced a big come-back against the Italians.

Panathinaikos trailed by as many as 15 points in the contest, yet they managed to turn things around and tie the game (62-62).

With Nedovic scoring crucial points and the hosts missing shots in crunch time, the “Greens” survived a late thriller over Armani.

“Honestly it felt like just another game. Maybe if the fans were here it would be different, but it is what it is,” Nedovic told reporters afterwards.

Panathinaikos climbed to 4-7 in the EuroLeague standings, whereas Armani dropped to 6-4.

CSKA Moscow extended its EuroLeague winning streak to seven games, after dominating Olympiacos at home (80-61).

The “Reds” led by eight early in the game (9-17), yet the Russians took over after that and never looked back.

The hosts led by as many as 24 points (70-46) and cruised to an easy victory.

CSKA became the first team to reach nine wins in the EuroLeague (9-3), whereas Olympiacos dropped to 5-5.

Fenerbahce snapped a four-game losing streak, thanks to a 65-73 victory over Zenit Saint Petersburg.

The Turks led by as many as 17, yet an 18-0 run helped the hosts make a comeback.

The visitors, though, sealed the deal behind an 0-10 run of their own midway the fourth quarter.

Fenerbahce now is at 5-7 in the EuroLeague standings, whereas Zenit has a 6-3 record.

Maccabi Tel-Aviv put an end to a three-game losing streak after a hard-fought victory over Crvena Zvezda at home (81-76).

Elijah Bryant took over, though, scored 14 points in six minutes in the fourth quarter and handed Maccabi the victory.

Both teams now have identical records in the EuroLeague (4-8).

ALBA Berlin set a new club record in three-pointers (17) and rallied past Valencia on the road (92-100).

The Germans were in control for the majority of the night, but it was a 3-23 run early in the second half that helped them cruise to the win.

The Spaniards never came closer than eight points and suffered a painful home loss.
