Ettore Messina, CSKA head coach

- It was a tough game between two good teams and Unicaja's good moments in the last period decided the final outcome, especially with their pressure on defense. The key of the game was Pietrus, who maybe didn't score, but did an amazing job on defense. We didn't use our open shots either and that caused a new loss for us. Unicaja has to travel to Athens now and maybe that helps us recover the second place in the group but I think that the most important thing is getting to the Top 16, as all groups are very balanced. Unicaja is an important team in Europe with great coaches, players and fans. They will do something big.
