Rimas Kurtinaitis, Khimki Moscow Region head coach:
“This season, Lokomotiv is playing well, not only in the VTB United League, but also in the EuroCup. Despite the fact that their leader and starting center Williams, who scored more than 20 points per game and grabbed 13-15 rebounds, is injured, they have many other good players in their squad, such as Kuzminskas, Kalnietis and main scorer Crawford. In short, this is a dangerous team that plays free attacking basketball. It won't be easy”.
