Dimitris Itoudis, CSKA head coach:
We opened the game very good. We led 37-20, if I am not mistaken. We gave up easy points in the second quarter, though. 34 [Maccabi points in the second quarter] is too much; we did not play serious defensively in that quarter. But if you take the sum of the first, the third and the fourth [quarters], you will see we were up by 18. We won those three quarters besides the second one, but it was a very bad picture. Actually, in the second half we gave up 33 points, which is 1 less than we gave up and received in that second quarter. Today we had many good opportunities in sharing the ball and making open shots. Good shooters like Vorontsevich, like Fridzon, Nando, Teodosic, they missed some open looks, but we supported them very well. We had 18 offensive boards, because if something doesnt go well, you have to choose another way to support them. Maccabi chooses to switch a lot and we got some open looks. Overall, it was another win in the EuroLeague, so we have to analyze this game and see what went wrong, especially in that defensive part in the second quarter, and keep working.
