Dimitris Itoudis, CSKA head coach:
I think we had composure when they came back twice, although it is a problem when you lose the difference just like that. But they did a pretty good job. They isolated, they have pretty good shooters who were shooting the ball pretty good, especially Nemanja Nedovic. But the fact we did not turn the ball over more than 7 times, for the second consecutive game, means we are going to have more possessions. And if we own the ball more, we can create things as well. So we put more difficulties to our opponents. And we came over here with the team that fights the boards, and we won the boards. I think those two things were key factors. Not the only factors, but key factors. I would like to congratulate my team for a road win. We had control most of the game, but basketball is game of runs and Panathinaikos had its own. But we were composed enough, we believed and we came back to lead by double-digits again. This year is going to be also about who is lucky, and not having [positive COVID-19] cases. But I want to emphasize we are playing basketball, people can watch basketball at least from their home.
