Dimitris Itoudis, CSKA head coach:
Congratulations to Loko. Our opponents played better most of the game. They competed, showed desire, shot better, and thats why they deserved to win. We started with good energy and played solid defense, but we gave up 52 points in the 2nd and 3rd quarters. We missed 15 free throws and a lot of open looks. In those conditions, its tough to count on a win. For us and for the club, its important to know what were doing wrong when we lose, because we have to use that knowledge. And well do that.
