Dimitris Itoudis, CSKA head coach:
Congratulations to the team on the win. As we expected and as I said in my pre-game quotes, Zenit was fighting. They obviously do not pretend to be in the playoffs, but they use the chance to prepare for the VTB League and their new coach is learning what are they able to do. We were consistent, winning all quarters and tying the last one. The fact that we changed our defense, it worked well, especially in the third quarter when we kept them to 15 points, we were up 11. Still we did not use our fouls well giving up 8 easy points. It is important to take every victory, as every team is fighting whenever it fights for certain position or not. We have to be ready for the next one. Tomorrow we watch the video and fly to Athens.
