Preview
Dependance on energy
CSKA and Zalgiris will clash on Megasport floor on Friday, two days after their previous games in the Euroleague.

“It is the second of back-to-back games for us,” CSKA head coach Dimitris Itoudis said. “We have to bounce back after the loss in Istanbul and, most importantly, after our bad performance. In this kind of series the energy becomes a major factor. Energy and concentration are the keys for the game tomorrow.”

The return from Turkey early morning did not leave our team away from pre-game practice on Megasport parquet. Injured Nando De Colo and Pavel Korobkov did not participate in it.
