Dimitris Itoudis, CSKA head coach:
First of all congratulations to my team, it was a tough road game against a motivated and talented team. Its difficult to play here. We both needed it desperately to prove were in a good mode and weve got to keep going in this tough league. The fact we gained 48 rebounds, we outran them and outshot them means we deserve congratulations, and we fought to the last moment despite the score. I like the fact my team was hustling, we had the mindset which is exactly the mindset needed to play in such a tough road game. Its a good game, we had some good games when the outcome was not what we wanted, but were a new team and we have to be realistic. There are some unwritten rules in this game that we have to follow and respect. We knew who we are, but nobody can underestimate us.
