PRE-GAME QUOTES

Dusko Ivanovic, BC Khimki head coach:

“After two games both teams know each other very well; Valencia knows how we play and we know them. In a third game it's more important to be patient and don't let Valencia play quickly. We have to stop their transition because they are a very good team in transition. If we stop them it will be different. We had a tough VTB United League game on Sunday but I'm sure we won't have physical problems in Spain”.
