Seems to be true
Our team drew a number of comparisons in the game against Spartak St. Petersburg but played the second half confidently to win in the meeting of VTB League leaders.
CSKA vs. Spartak St.Petersburg: 74-53 (+21)
Jonas Kazlauskas, CSKA head coach:
— We started great, continuing the best thing we did against Olympiacos. After that we lost our rhythm for two quarters. We had some bad decisions, we lacked concentration. At the same time I think we controlled the game even when we let the opponents to come closer. It's great that we got our rhythm back and reached bigger difference in the end. Initially I had an idea to use all 12 players and I think Kirilenko played too much. But, first, the outcome was decided with only three minutes left so I did not want the guys to come out of the bench for short period of time. Secondly, in the end we had Ponkrashov, Gordon, Lavrinovic and Vorontsevich on the floor — those who don't have enough playing time.
