CSKA crushes Maccabi TA in Moscow

Maccabi Tel Aviv was handed on Thursday night a harsh reminder of the massive gap it will have to bridge to compete with Europe’s best this season, suffering a humbling 100-69 defeat to CSKA Moscow in its Euroleague opener in Russia.

Maccabi was aiming to beat CSKA in Moscow for the first time since 2004. However, it was instead embarrassed by the hosts, capitulating in the second period and failing to even put up a fight in the second half, losing in the Russian capital for a sixth straight time.

Tel Aviv dropped to its second- heaviest defeat in Europe since 1991 after losing to CSKA in Moscow by 35 points in February 2014.
