Rimas Kurtinaitis, BC Khimki head coach:

— BC Azovmash is one of the leaders in Ukrainian championship so far and it plays quite good in VTB United League, despite loss to Tsmoki-Minsk in the last game. It's a seriuos team, after several wins in national championship they are on the rise right now, the players move ball fast and score triples well. There are dangerous players in the team like Maksym Pustozvonov, Kyrylo Natyazhko, Derrick Low and Daniel Kickert. Nominally we are favorites but we can't underestimate our opponents as we have to give battle to everyone. For sure, our aim is to win this game as we want to strengthen our positions in VTB United League.
