Rimas Kurtinaitis, BC Khimki head coach:
— First of all, I would like to congratulate Valencia Basket for its very good game. I have seen many Valencia games this season and this game was one of the best they played this season. For sure, Valencia is one of the best three-point shooters in the competition and they proved that tonight. About our team, we played our worst game this season. We were slower than Valencia, lost in rebounds and our three-point percentage was not good. Putting it in a few words, Valencia Bakset was stronger than us tonight.
