Dimitris Itoudis, CSKA head coach:
We are up 1-0, congratulations to the team, though this game should be analyzed deeply. We played loaded but it cannot be used as an excuse. We did not shoot well, we allowed 19 rebounds on our glass. Still I remember well how we made 18 offensive rebounds against Avtodor, we did not have any problem on boards. Yes, we managed to win, but we are not blind. We have to play better defense though we played good defense during some stints, we forced Nymburk to make 20 turnovers. I said that we expect Victor Khryapa and Pavel Korobkov to come back during the series. We monitor their shape on daily basis and they are possible to be on the roster for Game 2. I would like to thank every fan out of 1200 who came to cheer for us today. They created the atmosphere needed, we felt their support.
