Sergio Scariolo, BC Khimki head coach:
— I'm pleased with the game. I told my players to be concentrated during first minutes. We managed to do it and during the whole game we didn't allow ourselves to relax and let out the thread of a strife from our hands. Some players feel troubles with "physics", but it's time to be patient — we'll be all right in couple of weeks. Also we look forward for Kelati's recovering.
