Khimki vs. CSKA: 85-67


Ettore Messina, CSKA head coach:

- We came to Kazan as a very tired team. Last three months we play with seven players and it should have happened especially when we face two leg tournament. Unfortunately, we had no surprises this days. I tried to use our young players but that was not their game. It is too early for them to step on the level. Now we have to come back to Moscow and try to recover before the Top-16 games. It would not be easy. CSKA did not get used to loose.
