PRE-GAME QUOTES

Georgios Bartzokas, BC Khimki head coach:

“It's gonna be a challenging game for us. Last days we played with three 2017 EuroLeague Final Four teams, including CSKA now, I mean Olympiacos and Real Madrid. Of course, we need to play our best at the highest level. They have a lot of experience and talent. At the same time we believe in our team and have to do whatever we can to win this game. CSKA plays very fast; they execute very fast and can control the game with their guards. We have to count our potential against the best as CSKA is one of the best teams in Europe”.
