Dimitris Itoudis, CSKA head coach:
It was a disaster in the first half defensively. I think we changed the attitude defensively and we showed the way. In the third quarter we did contest all the shots; we committed on every drive. On any open shot, we [went] and contested; we didnt give anything easy. I think that the key was our effort defensively. Obviously, my team has a lot of talent on offense. Its time to be serious and to go down there, bend our knees, switching, yelling and show an effort. So we changed this. So congratulations to my team for the second half.
