Dimitris Itoudis, CSKA head coach:
Congratulations to the team with the victory, which is very important in the marathon, long-long process. In the first half we made just 13 per cent of three-pointers and 40 per cent of two-pointers, though we have many great shooters and most of the shots were well-prepared. It is important that we also supported those shots, we had 11 offensive rebounds in the first half, that led to 12 points. In the halftime I told the team that I believe in our shooters, in our defense. In the third quarter the result was great, we won 26-10, we got the boost. We started making shots off open looks, Alec found his rhythm. It was a good game to see where we are now. We still need to work together.We will play better and smarter.
