POST-GAME

Dusko Ivanovic, BC Khimki head coach:

"Very important victory for us. I think Kalev played really well whereas we didn't start this game well. After that we did some success but had four or five minutes without clear idea in the offense. Moreover, after our two or three mistakes in defense Kalev came for a possibility to win a game. But finally we won this game".
