We are leading in the VTB United League regular season, we want to take first place at the end of it to have home court advantage, so we can't make a mistake. Moreover, we are playing at home. The second point is that on the eve of crucial EuroLeague games, some players need to have a rest. We have micro traumas, so we'll see who will have a rest”.
