Pre-game quotes


Dimitris Itoudis, CSKA head coach:
We had two meetings – to analyze Real Madrid and our previous game. It was a poor performance for us and I expect the team to bounce back. Real is a great opponent, we know what does the team represents in European basketball. They won all the home games so far. They are big, long and have huge roster. They are dominant on every position even though they miss Taylor, they have several other player to cover his absence.

Janis Strelnieks, CSKA guard:
They play very good basketball lately. It’s a big game for us now, especially after our last game, we have to bounce back. We have to be focused and be ready for tomorrow’s fight.
