Dimitris Itoudis, CSKA head coach:
First of all, I would like to wish Happy Easter to all Orthodox people, it is really a holy day for all of us. Secondly, congratulations to our team, we are up 2-0 in the series. Obviously, the game was different in comparison to the first one. We were better focused on defense. We also created good looks on offense, and the shots will fall for us. The players like Teodosic, Vorontsevich, Higgins, De Colo will use this kind of moments. We had sloppy start again but we will work on it during our next practices. Still we won second and third quarter combined with 44-27 score; we set the tone of the game during this period. Still Nymburk fought, they played on the edge of foul, and I have to give them credit for that. The fight that we have in the series is really good for VTB League and for basketball. The return of Victor and Pavel is definitely a plus for us. Still we don’t give them many minutes now, because their return is a process, they have to get their shape and confidence back.
