Alar Varrak, Kalev head coach:
“Minute by minute, quarter by quarter Khimki got a lead by going up with five or six points. Many times journalists ask about the key moment in the game, so I can say tonight there was no any key moment. Khimki controlled the game forty minutes and, I think, a 24-point loss is fait enough”.
Dusko Ivanovic, BC Khimki head coach:
“We showed good, and sometimes very good, defense all forty minutes. It was very important to win and we did it”.
Jacob Pullen, BC Khimki guard:
“We did a good job tonight. We were a better team and showed it on the court. I was all right and made couple of shots, getting a chance to play. We have another game on Wednesday that we need to win”.
