Word to the coach

Dimitris Itoudis, CSKA head coach:
We play another difficult road game against a team that had no schedule obligations in past two weeks. They had time to prepare for this game. They are athletic and aggressive so we have to be ready for their transition game though they are very capable in halfcourt offense as well. We have to be focused and compete on highest level.
