The head coach of CSKA Dusan Ivkovic:

- Probably it was our best home game this season. I think that we deserve this victory. We played good in defense. I am satisfied with the work of our guards who could stop Smith. He was best sniper in the first round but today he scored only 10 points. Several days before the game Monya and Andersen get flu. Our doctors made big job, and today Andersen could participate in the game. Monya has injured his ankle and could not play.

The head coach of Scavolini Marco Crespi:

- CSKA is a great team with the very good roster. Every player can play very good in defense. Dusan Ivkovic made great job here in Moscow. We played good in the first and third quarters and not good in others. It was very good success to reach TOP16. Now we must try to win our games and concentrate on each of them.
