Dimitris Itoudis, CSKA head coach:
I like to congratulate my team for the win. Zvezda is a team that always tries and we expected them to come here and fight. We had good moments and bad moments, for sure, but that is basketball, basketball is a game of runs. I emphasized, when they took the lead 54-55 in the third quarter, we had a 20-6 run. We played serious defense and broke the game to a serious margin. The final margin of 26 points is not a real picture of the way Zvezda fought today. We now have two trips, one to Istanbul and another one to Tallinn. Mike James had a great shooting night, but I decided not to give him that much playing time where he could have scored more and make more plays because we have to think about the future.
