    - The key player for the win was Nikita Kurbanov who stepped on the court when the game was open and helped us a lot. He showed clearly that he is ready to play. We did not have Matjaz Smodis in this game but we hope that he would be able to recover from the injury by the game against Ulker. David Andersen spent only 18 minutes on the court because he was not completely recovered too but we need him to play.
