PRE-GAME QUOTES

Georgios Bartzokas, BC Khimki head coach:

“We'll have a tough road game. UNICS is a good team with a great coach, also they had more time to prepare for this game, whereas we had only one day. There are some problems with the roster. Markovic sprained ankle and will not fly with us to Kazan. We expect his returning for the next game. But we are confident in ourselves and are going to give our best to win”.
