Dimitris Itoudis, CSKA head coach:
Big congratulations to the team. We faced a strong opponent today that always fights. And the game proved that our team is capable of adapting. We want to avoid stereotypes… That we’re an offensive, defensive or any other kind of team. Today we only let Loko score a little over 50 points. We won three quarters and only trailed in the second when both teams scored very few. We controlled the game with our physicality and got effort from everyone who stepped on the court. I lost my voice because we played 3 games in 5 days. So I would like to thank the players and my assistants, who I asked to be louder. A big thank-you to the fans who truly united the team and gave us energy.
