ASVEL shooting guard Rihards Lomazs has been a teammate of Khimki's Janis Timma and Dairis Bertans on the Latvian national team.
Rimas Kurtinaitis, Khimki Moscow Region head coach:
“ASVEL is a tough team. I think physically, they are one of the best, if not the best, teams in the EuroLeague that plays physical basketball with aggressive defense and aggressive offense. If there is an opportunity to attack in the fifth or tenth second, they always take this chance. So, this is a very dangerous opponent and the game will not be easy”.
Sergey Karasev, Khimki Moscow Region forward:
“ASVEL is an aggressive and physically strong team that plays fast basketball. They are aggressive on defense and move quickly from defense to offense, preferring to attack early on offense. They also make a lot of post plays. For us, the main thing is to stop their fastbreaks”.
