Rimas Kurtinaitis, BC Khimki head coach:

— Our opponent pays attention to defense throughout all the game and makes it pretty tough. There are good players like Filip Videnov, who has good shot and Davin White, who scored a lot in penetration. Like in our previous game with BC Krasny Oktyabr in VTB United League we should neutralize "small" players of our opponent. We had no time to prepare for this game as we came back from Volgograd on Monday. Nevertheless we are determined, excited and ready to fight as we are targeted at winning this game.
