Nice to see J-Mac back on the court. 8 boards in 15 minutes ain't bad. Overall, CSKA out-rebounded Spartak 36 to 22, which is surprising when the latter has Fowles and LJ.

If it brings in more $, why not? Fans are fans. I always want to see one more, one more, one more game.

I have a question:
Quote:
the final moments of which were played in near darkness.

Huh? Did the lights go out? Or was this some reference to CSKA's season-long troubles. Wink Just kidding. I figure it was the former, but wanted confirmation before I started gossiping about it with my friends.

Why did they keep playing with no lights?

Yeah the lights went out right at the very end. Play stopped but I guess they could't figure out the problem so the last few possesions were played without lights. And CSKA played so bad they could have played the whole thing without lights and spared us that mess...lol!

They don't make money on their games from paying fans was always my understanding. I guess they have their reasons but by eliminating series other than for 1st, 2nd and maybe 3rd if need be, it could give these year round players some rest time before WNBA camp. Not their concern I'm sure. Laughing
