Rimas Kurtinaitis, Khimki Moscow Region head coach:

“Astana is playing very well this season. This is a dangerous team, which they showed in games vs. Zenit and UNICS. They have interesting players on their roster. The six Americans shoulder most of the responsibilities. They don’t have one clearly-defined star. All of the foreign players average between 10 and 15 points. In other words, they play team basketball. They love to push the tempo and score early in possessions. They like to shoot 3-pointers after the first pass or screen and do so at a high percentage. Astana always battles and it won’t be easy, but we are playing at home and determined to win”.
