Ettore Messina, CSKA head coach:
It was an important win against an excellent team. My players played good game, they had to adjust to different things the opponents offered to us. Galatasaray played small, spread the floor, attacked us with pick-n-rolls. Our players were smart enough to defend those pick-n-roll situations and they were able to outrebound one of the best rebounding teams in Euroleague. Hopefully this win will give us more motivation in our preparations.
