BC Khimki went to Gdynia in full strength.
EXCHANGE OF OPINIONS
— We start the second round of Euroleague with high motivation to improve our performances. We were not lucky in some very close games, we had many physical problems in the first round, but there is no excuse. We hope to start the second round better, but it's gonna be very difficult to play on Prokom’s home court against a talented, experienced team with high scoring potential. We must play extremely well on defense to win. I hope we will show character in the last minutes to have not only 35 minutes of good basketball, but a complete game of 40 minutes.
— This season we have already played two games with Asseco Prokom twice: in Euroleague and VTB United League. In the VTB League game, we won without any problems, but in the championship of the strongest European clubs, it was more difficult to play with Prokom. The team ranks the last place in our group, nevertheless I’m sure at home they will try to make their fans happy. The game will not be easy. No one has laid his cards on the table.
