Rimas Kurtinaitis, BC Khimki head coach:
"The game itself makes me happy, even if Kalev wasn't in ideal condition. Unfortunately, we lost two players, Marko Popovic and James Augustine. We'll find out later how serious it was. In general, we played well and had fun. The fans and the players should have enjoyed the game, since basketball is supposed to be fun, like it was today. Everyone that was healthy played. Stanislav Ilnitsky hurt himself at practice the other day, which is why he wasn't on the court".
