PRE-GAME QUOTES

Dusko Ivanovic, BC Khimki head coach:

“We must win and we can do it. So we have to play a little bit more differently than we did in Spain. I mean we need to improve in defense, adding aggressivity and concentration. Also, we have to play with better patience in offense”.

Markel Brown, BC Khimki guard:

“We've got to go here and rebound the ball, they outrebounded us a lot on the boards. They had more than 20 offensive rebounds that means they had a lot of second chances. They shot the ball excellent; we just have to do a better job being able to help our bigs and to recover our guards whenever they step up for a three”.
