Real Madrid big man Anthony Randolph played under coach Georgios Bartzokas at Lokomotiv Kuban Krasnodar during the 2015/2016 season. They reached the EuroLeague Final Four together.
Madrid center Ognjen Kuzmic and Khimki guard Charles Jenkins were teammates at Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade during the 2016/2017 season.
Madrid's Klemen Prepelic and Khimki's Stefan Markovic were teammates at Banvit Bandirma in the 2013/2014 season.
Georgios Bartzokas, BC Khimki head coach:
“We have problems with the roster but sometimes this happens. We have to accept it ang go on. This game is one of the most demanding in the EuroLeague. We are talking about EuroLeague champions, a team that has a much deeper bench than last season, even although they lost Doncic, they added the players they needed. They look like unbeatable but in sports always you need to believe in your team and play with confidence. This is what we are going to do, to fight for every possession and see what happens”.
Stefan Markovic, BC Khimki guard:
“They are reigning EuroLeague champions and playing extremely well. They have continuity as they didn’t change team so much, coach is the same. It’s gonna be tough as we are playing a road game. We have some problems will sickness. Anyway, we just need to fight, show our best face over there an play a perfect game because at this moment on the road you need to be perfect in order to win. We’ll try to show our best and fight”.
