BC Khimki head coach Georgios Bartzokas commented upon the upcoming VTB United League playoffs game 2 BC Khimki vs. Lokomotiv-Kuban.

Coach, what should we change in Game 2?

“Nothing changed. It’s a tough series and we still have same problems with the roster, I mean absences and the players who played with pain. So, let’s take one game at a time and let’s understand that our opponent is a very difficult team. We need to play very well if we want to win. I think, small things can decide this game. Mostly the coaches are trying to have some small adjustments, according to the previous game. At the same time, basically we have to prepare the team mentally to play this kind of game, of such importance”.

Chris Babb will propably return. Will his return change anything?

“Babb is a good player and good shooter. At the same time, everybody from Loko roster is a good player, so we cannot underestimate any player”.
