Dimitris Itoudis, CSKA head coach:
I would like to comgratulate my team for the win, its performance and the respect they showed for the game and each other. I think, and we will all agree, that we were in control of the game most of the time. We got into the game really strong, not giving the opportunity to our opponent to have open looks or good offenses. We were dominant. Definitely, we had some lack of stamina in the end and two facts – the fact that we lost the rebounds battle and that we shot poorly on free throws – kept them in the game consistently. The other fact, which was also a turning point for us, was the fact that we forced 23 turnovers. It shows that we were good at that level, for sure.
