Dimitris Itoudis, CSKA head coach:
I think we have to be happy, overall, and in general, with our attitude from a defensive standpoint. We focused and did not give out easy things. Of course, Zalgiris made, I think, one of the best performances regarding the shooting abilities that they have, and shooting percentages, the effectiveness they found beyond the arc. They have the quality to do so, but the fact that we forced again, for the second consecutive game, a lot of turnovers to our opponent means that we have a good approach towards that. We start from defense and then we are going to find the other things. We can talk about a lot of details, but I think we are happy with the W on the road against a team that, like I said, is not a surprise for me that they play as a team. They really moved the ball, have high intensity and deserve everything they’ve got so far.
