Rimas Kurtinaitis, BC Khimki head coach:

— Hapoel Migdal made a good impression on me after first two Eurocup games. The team uses a lot of defense options, as I can say they use David Blatt's system with many defense changes, involving all the players on the court. This tactics often misleads the opponent, but we are ready for it. The main players of the team are Halperin and Parakhouski. I coached Parakhouski in VEF Riga, where he came from one of the American Universities. At the moment he is one of the leaders of the Israeli team. Of course, at home Hapoel plays well, but we are targeted at winning this game as we have no steps back. We have to win to restore a positive balance in our group that is extremely important right now.
