Rimas Kurtinaitis, Khimki Moscow Region head coach:

“Of course, Zubkov’s injury is a very big loss and we are in a tough spot, which means everyone needs to contribute and play for the team. We had little time to prepare, but did everything we could given our circumstances. Avtodor is a dangerous team that plays very up-tempo basketball, attacks often on fast breaks and looks for easy shots. They have tall centers led by Zabelin and a good point guard in Golden, who runs their entire offense. We will have to work, but we’re ready”.
