PRE-GAME QUOTES

Dusko Ivanovic, BC Khimki head coach:

“It's not easy to play two games in two days but this game is also important for us. VTB League is a significant competition for us. At this moment we are at the second position trying to stay here or even going up. I hope my players will consider the importance of this game. We'll have a recovering practice and shorter practice. I think Tsmoki-Minsk is a good team with character. They have quick players and good shooters. In Belorussia we had a very tough game; we won finally but it was difficult. We must play very seriously”.
