PRE-GAME QUOTES

Georgios Bartzokas, BC Khimki head coach:

“Tomorrow we are starting our official games. We are excited to play, present and show our job until now. I don’t have to repeat one more time that we are not ready because we still don’t have so much time to prepare and play in one hundred percent. But we are very positive about our team. We don’t underestimate any opponent. Minsk played some official games until now and probably they have a good game rhythm. If we don’t want to have surprises we need to approach this game with a very serious way”.
