Dimitris Itoudis, CSKA head coach:
We had another good preparation game. As I say to the team before the official season starts we have to see all good and bad moments. Definitely, the third quarter stands out: we werent able to react on Efes aggressive defense. We had low three-point percentage. At the same time we dominated in the first half, scored 31 point in the second period and played good fourth quarter when we found the keys to win the game.
