Our team to play its third game in five days in Tallinn.

Pre-game breakdown

The Army Men stayed overnight in Istanbul after beating Efes and travelled to Estonia by Aeroflot charter flight.

The red-blues did not practice normally, the team had just warmup and stretching in the hotel gym.

Ron Baker (not on VTB League roster) and one other foreigner will not play in the game. Andrey Lopatin joined his teammates in Tallinn.

Word to the coach

Dimitris Itoudis, CSKA head coach:
Kalev has a new team, new coach, new philosophy this year. They recently signed two new foreigners, this fact confirms their ambitions. For us it is a matter of handling the load on the players, because we are on the “triple” week, this is what we going to do. And, obviously, we will approach the game seriously.
