Post Flight analysis with Kestutis Kemzura20 may 2007

It is reasonable that after the victory on the post game press-conference BC Khimki head coach Kestutis Kemzura was elated, unlike his vis-à-vis the head coach of UNOCS Antanas Sireika, who was in a dismal mood.

— Of course, I am very happy. – said Kemzura. — We won and can compete for moving to the final. I am proud of my players. They have done everything in their power to forget the failure in Kazan and won deservedly in this match.

Khimki showed the best play today?

— No. We should and, I know, we can play stronger: to rebound better and make not so many mistakes.

When in the third period UNICS equalized the score, had you arrived at the idea that the scenario of second game could be repeated?

— I can’t permit myself thinking so badly. I believe in my players and in victory.

Your friend David Blatt was on the stand today. His presence helped you?

— Yes. I expected his arrival and was very happy to see him. The support of my friend is very important for me.
