Dimitris Itoudis, CSKA head coach:
We were kind of slow, too much reaction and not enough action on both ends and we were kind of waiting and waiting for something to happen. So we talked before the fourth quarter that we needed to see that fire and that belief in the eyes of the players and big congratulations to them, because we really outplayed them in that last quarter, outsmarted them offensively and defensively Maybe we were not that productive in assists, but when they are switching or have big bodies on some others, we choose another way to go. Besides the 27 points, the 12 that we managed to keep them on in the fourth quarter, that was huge. I give big congratulations to the team for believing. I saw that fire. Even though it didn’t change anything in the standings for us, it was a big win. Internally we wanted that win a lot.
