Dimitris Itoudis, CSKA head coach:
Congratulations to our players with the victory. We started sloppy, though we worked to start well, we expected Brose Basket to play strong from the beginning. After that we turned our heads, hands, chests to the ball, we played better defense, we were dominant in most game situations and deserved to win. It was another victory in our tough group. I would like to thank the fans, those 8 thousands created great atmosphere and I expect them to come in even bigger numbers. They lift the team, that’s a fact.
Aaron Jackson, CSKA Moscow guard:
We started not really good losing 10 points, then called a timeout to make some adjustments. We played as a team, reacted more appropriate. I think we did a great job and maintained it till the end of the game. Our defense in the first half let us win today, we found the right ways by switching players.
