Jānis Strēlnieks returned to the square on Thursday after a month-long break and helped CSKA Moscow “Turkish Airlines” win “Valencia” in the Euroleague match with 84:75.
The shooter had only played one game in the VTB league this season when the basketball player tested positive for Covid-19.
In the fight with “Valencia” Jānis dominated the field for 10 minutes and scored 2 points. The Latvian national team’s game-leader hit one of the three two-pointers in the basket, missed the only long throw and gave up two assists.
In the CSKA team, Mike James scored 17 points and Will Klaibērns 15 points.
In the Valencia ranks, Nikola Kalinich and Louis Laber account for 15 and 10 points respectively.
