Rimas Kurtinaitis, BC Khimki head coach:

— We are preparing for the game with CSKA in a customary regime. Undoubtedly, CSKA Moscow is a very strong team, which plays now much better than at the start of the season. It will be tough game but we'll try to impose the opponent our rhythm, as we can succeed at the expense of team effort and good defense. The victory over Pinar Karsiyaka Izmir gave us confidence as we faced a very good team that didn't suffer any loss at home this season. We played very well and I am pleased that we did not succumb to pressure from the fans and bench players, we didn't digress from our way to extraneous things. We have this right now as we wanted to be focused and concentrated on playing all 40 minutes.
