POST-GAME

Dusko Ivanovic, BC Khimki head coach:

"Very important game. Tsmoki is a good team that played at home whereas we didn't have five important players. I think we started well and three quarters played very good. The last quarter we didn't play good; we played very bad on the situations five on five in offense. With Gray's good shot Tsmoki had an option for win. I think today we had a better team. When you have an advantage during 35-38 minutes by a margin of 10 or more points and then your opponent scores and making the game equal it becomes nervous. Our last two or three offenses were very bad; that was our problem tonight".
