Rimas Kurtinaitis, Khimki Moscow Region head coach:

“Nizhny Novgorod plays free basketball. They usually have nothing to lose against big teams, as they play well against Khimki, UNICS and CSKA. There was a time when they beat us. The first game in Nizhny Novgorod turned out very well for us, but then we were a little fresher and ran faster, so we scored more than 100 points, as in some EuroLeague games. Now the situation is a little different, but we are ready. We did a short practice, because this will be the fourth game in eight days. We must be ready for the energy that Nizhny Novgorod will play with”.
