Dimitris Itoudis, CSKA head coach:
We are up 1-0 and we played real playoff game. We will continue to fight, its a series and one win is not enough. We have a day to watch the film, analyze what we did good and bad, to make conclusions and play better on Saturday. I would also like to congratulate Nando with his well-deserved MVP award.

Alexander Kaun, CSKA Moscow center:
I think we had some problems today because Nizhny played zone defense and we were not ready. In the first half everything worked well we played personal defense and scored off pick-and-rolls. Tomorrow we are going to watch video and decide the problem to prevent it.
