This is not our approach and not our win

Seems like for the first time this season our team looked disinterested on the basketball court. Saratov team used it with pleasure and made CSKA set its new record in points allowed.

CSKA vs. Avtodor (Saratov): 104-107 (-3)

CSKA: Teodosic (17 + 8 as + 3 to + 4 pf), Nichols (10 + 4 pf), Jackson (7 + 4 as), Markoishvili (11 + 4 rb), Korobkov (13 + 4 rb), Weems (11 + 6 rb + 4 to), Vorontsevich (11 + 4 rb + 5 pf), Khryapa (2 + 4 rb + 3 to), Hines (4 + 4 pf), Kirilenko (18 + 11 rb + 4 st)

Avtodor: Downs (18 + 6 rb + 4 st + 4 to), Fortson (31 + 9 as + 3 to + 4 pf), Kolchenko (3 st), Vzdyhalkin (8), Bekkiev (2 + 5 pf), Klimenko (2 + 4 rb + 5 pf), Chappell (24 + 4 rb), Peterson (13 + 7 rb + 3 to), Fesenko (9 + 12 rb + 3 bs + 4 to)

Dimitris Itoudis, CSKA head coach:
We showed a lack of concentration and motivation..factors which each player must have in his game. You cant win without it. We were good on offense in the first half and scored 57 points, but we just wasnt there in the 3rd and 4th quarters. We gave up 38 points in the final period. We were sloppy on defense and gave up a lot of uncontested shots. We knew that Avtodor has players who can make baskets but still had the wrong attitude entering the game. I hope this will be a good lesson for us. Nonetheless, I want to congratulate my men on finishing first in the VTB United League regular season. We have raised a lot of questions for ourselves with our play over the season and we are trying to resolve them. I also want to thank the fans for coming to support us and I want to apologize on behalf of the team for our approach to the game today.
