Dusko Ivanovic, BC Khimki head coach:
"ALBA started very well this EuroCup campaign. They won in Bilbao last week and play really well in Berlin. They play with energy and quickly. However, every game we play for a win and try to do it better. I hope we can win it on the road now".
Stanislav Ilnitskiy, BC Khimki forward:
“We had a good game with Lokomotiv on Sunday. It was notable for Shved’s return and our fight, so now I hope that we will improve every game, week by week. We have seriously prepared for ALBA because we have to win and it doesn’t matter if this is an away game or home. ALBA has two wins so far and tops Group B. I think small details decide such games: either you play better defense or score tough shots, so the overall margin is not so large. However, the main point is defense. I mean if we play good defense, we’ll win games. Hopefully, we’ll change the situation in Berlin”.
