Dimitris Itoudis, CSKA head coach:
I would like to congratulate Maccabi. The outcome could have been different after we tied the game at 80-80, but we have seen two different halves from both teams. We were confident in the first half, reading well what was given to us, but in the second half on the switches, we had a very bad approach, shooting the ball poorly. We had good looks, but we didnt make our shots and we are turning over the ball too much. Weve got to reduce our turnovers. But we came back again and the 10-0 run at the end was a very bad period. The end of the first and second halves we gave Maccabi the ball to have the last possession, and both ended with baskets. Thats sloppy.
