Prediction: BC Khimki Moscow - CSKA Moscow
- Title : Prediction: BC Khimki Moscow - CSKA Moscow
Khimki are 10th on the table with two wins from six matches. They are also playing in the Euroleague, where they recorded just one win from six games. Khimki, at one moment, had seven missing players because of injuries and coronavirus infections. Khimki were on terrible six losses in a row run until last Friday when they won 83-77 at home against Crvena Zvezda in the Euroleague.
CSKA Moscow are the best Russian team right now, so I expect their win on against Khimki.
Visitors were into the game until the last quarter. The principal focuses in the past quarter scored Crvena Zvezda for a 60-58 lead. In the following couple of moments, Khimki were splendid in assault, so after only six or seven minutes, it was 81-69 for the Russian side. Until the finish of the game, Crvena Zvezda took a stab at everything, except they couldn't get once again into the match. Errick McCollum was Khimki's leading scorer with 23 points, while Alexey Shved had 15 points and 12 assists.
CSKA Moscow are fourth on the table with four wins from five matches. In the Euroleague, they are ninth on the table with three wins from six rounds. CSKA Moscow are playing great right now, as they won the last two matches, 84-75 against Valencia and 109-60 versus Enisey.
CSKA's last game (against Enisey) was excessively simple. Effectively after two quarters, they had a 55-34 lead. Ivan Ukhov were CSKA's leading scorer in that game with 18 points, while Tornike Shengelia added two points less.
My prediction: over Over 166.5 Total Points - Including Overtime
