Dimitris Itoudis, CSKA head coach:
I would like to give my congratulations to my team. Our mindset was crystal clear at both ends, and especially defensively we were focussed, determined and had good communication. We managed to take out a great player and creator, Calathes, and that’s a key point for me. We had the wrong attitude in Madrid, but for sure that game helped us – watching the film and realising where we could play better. Now we have to stay healthy and stay together because we are a new team, but today we found other ways to score without Nando. We have seen a totally different picture of our team from our last EuroLeague game. We had a different approach on offense and defense, and holding a great team to 63 points shows that defense was the key.
