Rimas Kurtinaitis, BC Khimki head coach:

— Astana started season well, having scored two wins in three VTB United League games but the series of defeats made club's management choose the head coach. From past experience I may say that the game won't be an easy going as we had two losses in four previous games vs Astana. David Simon's injury will probably influence its game but the Kazakhstan team has another great players like Lonniel Rush and Jerry Johnson who are fast, have good shot and make result. On a wave of our recent successes, good physical and technical conditions we'll try to continue our unbeaten streak.
