Russian final in VTB UL semifinal24 may 2013

On Saturday and Sunday, May 25 and 26, 2013 in VTB United League 1/2 final BC Khimki at home will face PBC CSKA (Moscow). Game 1 (May 25) will start at 13.00 msk, game 2 (May 26) — at 18.30 msk.

Rimas Kurtinaitis, BC Khimki head coach:

— I think the teams chances are fairly even. At this point we're in pretty good shape, and we're probably fresher. BC Khimki didn't play in London, while the VEF series was a lot easier than we expected. It's difficult to win a series against CSKA, but nothing's impossible. I don't want to talk about the entire series, however. At this point we're just focused on the next game, which will be played in Khimki on Saturday.
