Georgios Bartzokas, BC Khimki head coach:

“Avtodor is a great offensive team. They are first in VTB United League in points on transition. They scored almost 130 points in the last FIBA Europe Cup game. They really want to play in a high pace. We knos what we have to do against such kind of teams: we need to be consistent and patient. We respect that they have offensive talent and ability but we need to play with our own rhythm, be patient and committed to basic things of basketball. It's a very important game for us, like every one, especially in the VTB United League”.
