Georgios Bartzokas, BC Khimki head coach:
“This is a period for us when we try to recover from our injury issues that we had in the EuroLeague series. A lot of players played with injections and now need to rehab and have treatment. Nevertheless, we need to play hard and finish this season before the playoffs as good as we can. Traditionally, Avtodor is playing up-tempo game, they prefer up-tempo basketball. They have a lot of offensive talent. As always, we need to be consistent and control the rhythm of the game”.
