Dimitris Itoudis, CSKA head coach:
I would like to congratulate my team. I think we were the better team tonight. We played a very mature game, a very smart game, I would say. We managed to force 16 turnovers on them on their own court. We managed not to give them open-court chances, where its tough to stop an athletic team like Maccabi. Even though we didnt shoot well from the outside, we controlled the game from the very beginning. We had our moments, of course, especially in the third quarter, when we couldnt operate well. They put a lot of pressure on our ballhandlers and we played it wrong against one of their best defenders, Kane. But we found a way to operate differently, with post-ups and driving the ball, which was very important. Maccabi was one of the best rebounding teams before the game and we won that battle, so overall we were the better team and once again I say congratulations to my team for a big win. To be continued and good luck to Maccabi.
