Dimitris Itoudis, CSKA head coach:
We expected that UNICS will try to surprise us after the Game 1. Still I think we controlled the game most of the time. In the first half we allowed 11 offensive rebounds that were turned into 15 points, but in the second we gave them just 4 rebounds. It should be mentioned that in the first half we scored almost 50 points with 80% of two-pointers. We had the same attitude in the second half. Our plan was to limit their main creators Langford, Colom and Ponkrashov and we generally managed to reach our goal. We had our X-factors: Nichols and Khryapa did not miss a shot, we received huge help from Jackson and Korobkov. The series is not over. We have to win one more game to take the title. We keep our motivation high. We will have one day of rest and we fly to Kazan.
