Khimki's Petr Gubanov and Maccabi's DeAndre Kane were teammates at Nizhny Novgorod in the 2016/2017 season.

Rimas Kurtinaitis, Khimki Moscow Region head coach:
“This is a EuroLeague game and we have to play it with maximum effort. As a coach, I can say that we don’t have unimportant games. I am sure, both teams will play at the maximum, let’s see who has that maximum. After the game in Istanbul, we decided to give the players a rest, because now it is important to recover and gain freshness than to “load” the players. It is important to stick together, show skills, give all our best for hundred percent and only then something will turn out”.
Jordan Mickey, Khimki Moscow Region forward:
“They are a good team with good players. I expect a great and competitive game. They just as good as we are. We have to put attention to rebounds and limit our turnovers. Little things will decide the game”.
