Ettore Messina, CSKA head coach:

- The game was important for us as we faced the team that play with such intense as CSK VVS after a weak of hard practices without a single game played. We found our rhythm in offense after the half time and we played good in the defense for all the game long. I guess in two-three days we would be completely ready for the Euroleague TOP16.
