Rimas Kurtinaitis, BC Khimki head coach:
— Every time a team plays in Stozice, it is dangeours for them. Union Olimpija doesn't have big names, but they are always fighting and this time they played a great game. I am very happy that we won the game, but I can not be happy with the way we played. We did not play good defense, because we allowed 85 points. Our defense is not completely guilty for the points, it is also the good game of a few Union Olimpija's players. Ljubljana has a very good team this year and a smart coach. I wish them all the best in the next games.
