Andrey Maltsev, Khimki Moscow Region interim head coach:
“Zenit is now in a good shape right now. They are a strong team with a good rotation, excellent shooters and an experienced coach Pascual. Zenit lost the last game in the EuroLeague and will try to rehabilitate themselves in front of their fans. We have good news — Evgeny Voronov has returned after his injury, but we were not completely without injuries again. Now we have a very difficult schedule, games every couple of days, and the recovery of players between games comes to the fore. We will do our best to show good basketball and fight for a Win”.
