Dusko Ivanovic, BC Khimki head coach:
“ratiopharm Ulm is a very good team. We analyzed their game and realized that they have played very fast. Maybe now Ulm is the fastest team in Europe. They have excellent shooters and play well with small guys. They have good transition and do it really well. They are unbeaten in the German League so far. Ulm has very good inside player in Morgan. He is very strong, good on rebounding and situations one on one. He plays open, inside and outside. Hobbs is also a very good point guard who has a good shot. Generally, they do it well like a team as they are strong. We expect a tough game. I hope we can show good defense all forty minutes because this is the only was to beat this team”.
Markel Brown, BC Khimki guard:
“Every time that you have to travel for a road game to play an opponent is always gonna be a difficult match. We need to go there and be focused because we are coming up against a very tough opponent. We've already lost one game in this EuroCup Top 16 and now need to continue playing well on a road in order to reach our goals. We didn't have enough team chemistry on the court in Munich. We didn't stick to our style of basketball. On Sunday we did a great job of getting back to the Khimki basketball, they were used to play”.
