Malcolm Thomas and Darko Planinic played together in Maccabi Tel Aviv in season 2012/2013.


Rimas Kurtinaitis, Khimki Moscow Region head coach:

“Zielona Gora plays well. Even in the lost games they have scored almost 100 points as they are focused on the offense and fast breaks. It will be tough to play against them but we are ready. Having finished EuroLeague campaign, we are focused on VTB United League. Zielona Gora has good players from Polish national team like Koszarek, Zamojski and Hrycaniuk. Also, they have Darko Planinic with EuroLeague experience. Generally, they have good roster but we play at home and our goal is to win this game”.
