Dimitris Itoudis, CSKA head coach:
We forced 18 turnovers in back-to-back games, and thats something that we have worked on a lot, and were able to do against Panathinaikos in previous game, and now against Efes, such a talented team, with a lot of good ballhandlers, a lot of good isolation players, a lot of good creators. We forced them into 18 turnovers, and thats the key. It shows us, although maybe we dont get that much of a credit on their 80 points, but Im telling you we did a pretty good job, besides the first quarter, on defense. What we are looking for now is the continuity and consistency on what we are doing. Its not easy because we miss practices, we miss the chemistry, but today Im happy with my players. They responded well.
