Post Game Coach CommentsKhimki Coach Kestutis KEMZURA:
— Today our team dictated the game, was good at defense. But the deciding match was yesterday. Unlike the opponent we have strength in deep. Dynamo players were tired. I can to emphasize good play of Aleksey Savkov. He becomes more self-confidence. And look at McCarty, yesterday he scored 20 points. Today 16 rebounds on his credit. But I wanna thank all my players.
