PRE-GAME QUOTES

Georgios Bartzokas, BC Khimki head coach:

“Avtodor is a team that traditionally likes to run and play up-tempo game. They have ability to steal the ball; they are first in the VTB League in stealing balls. So, we need to be very alert on this, protect the ball and play in our rhythm. Also, we need to adjust to this type of game, I mean up-tempo with a lot of deflections and steals”.
