Ettore Messina, CSKA head coach:
The great atmosphere here is even better than in many of European arena because the fans gave us warm and respectful welcome. Hopefully they liked the game. We had excellent start but when we started to rotate our lineup we lost concentration on defense. We allowed the opponents to score 15 fast break points in the first half and it is risky against such high-scoring team. In the second half we played better defense and our two-center lineup improved our offense giving us more chances to win.
