Dimitris Itoudis, CSKA head coach:
Congratulations to the team on the victory. We started slowly, especially on defense, but managed to recover our game, we pressed their ballhandlers and almost tied it in the first quarter already. We defended better and make Nizhny key players take poor decision, for instance, Jelovac shot 3 for 11 tonight. Obviously, it was difficult to keep the same tempo in the contact game with so many fouls. We got road victory and we think our next game.
