Post flight analysis: Timofey Mozgov25 february 2009
Match against “Panellinios” became for youth center Timofey Mozgov the best in season. He became the top scorer (23 points), and the most valuable person (together with Kelly McCarty) of 4 week of Last 16 Eurocup.
— Nice to see on the board, that you have scored many points, — said Timofey Mozgov. – But nobody can win alone in basketball. Of course, we got ready to the match. And I feel that I am in fighting form. Coach asked to play more aggressive under backboards.
Will this victory help the team to feel more self-confident?
— Yes, we are in good mood now. Our team has possibilities to reach Final Eight, if we play as today evening. If we will beat “Maroussi” and “Dynamo” we will palced second in group I.
Maciej Lampe gets rehabilitated, Ratko Varda is adapting to new team. Do you fear the competition?
— I am ready to prove that I can get to the court. Of course, when Maciej will return to the court, our team became stronger. I think that team needs to have in roster two healthy big players. It is difficult to play without substitutes. Sometimes, power forward can not replace center. The arrival of Ratko Varda is great news for team. I don’t think now who will get to the court. I must work hard.
