Dimitris Itoudis, CSKA head coach:
It was two different halves. We talked in the locker room at half time about the changes we need to make because we basically did not defend in the first half. In the second we started to play better defense, rebound, contest shots. In 15 minutes of the second half the score was 25-47. In fact we just replaced our defensive chip. So congratulations to the team. It was never easy here, to deal with what they call Avtodor basketball.
