Dimitris Itoudis, CSKA head coach:
Congratulations to the team, we are up 1-0 in the series. We prepared for the game knowing it will be tough game and tough series. Red Star plays physical and athletic game. We controlled the game, we had some good and bad moments defensively. On offense we made 70% of our two-point shots but made just 7 of 20 three-pointers, many of them were uncontested, and this is not a good numbers for home game. We will watch the video to try to find out how we can improve here. Our opponents had 15 offensive rebounds which also worries us. I would like to thank our fans who provided help for our team.
