The 15th edition of the Euroleague Basketball ADIDAS NEXT GENERATION TOURNAMENT Finals opened fire on Thursday morning in Istanbul with a U18 CSKA Moscow win over U18 Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade, 80-84, in Group A. CSKA managed to stay strong and came back from a 15-point deficit to finally steal the win in the last minutes. Dmitrii Gusenkov led the winners with his 17 points, helped by Andrei Savrasov's 13 and Alksandr Ershov's 12. For Zvezda, Stefan Momirov led the way with 14 points, Ranko Simovic added 13, Vuk Djordjevic 12 and Zoran Paunovic 10.

Both teams stayed close during the first quarter trading leads, but a 19-4 run that started in minute 8, including two threes by Zvezda's Zoran Paunovic, propelled the Serbian team to a 41-24 lead. However, it was not all said and done by any means as CSKA regrouped and started erasing the deficit little by little through Andrei Savrasov and Dmitrii Gusenkov as the game hit the halftime break with a Zvezda 6-point lead, 45-39. In the second half, CSKA completed the job when Gusenkov hit a bucket to tie the game at 49-49, and then Sergey Dolinin even added a new basket to put CSKA in command again for the first time in 19 minutes after a 0-11 run. A couple of three-point plays helped Zvezda maintain a hesitating lead however, as Stefan Momirov scored his extra free throw to make it 66-60, but Gusenkov drove unopposed to cap the third period with a 66-62. In the last quarter, Dmitrii Khladev's basket made it a one-point game, 69-68, and later Dolininn put CSKA in the lead again, 73-75. A Gusenkov three with 44 seconds to go seemed to seal the deal, 77-81, but Simovic replied in the same way, 80-81. However, A turnover by Paunovic, which was called for travelling, allowed Gusenkov to go to the line and seal a much fought CSKA win to open the tournament.
