Rimas Kurtinaitis, BC Khimki head coach:
— I'd like to congratulate CSKA on the deserved win. I'll be honest: we weren't good or strong enough today to make it a game. The first quarter sank us, when the Army Men took a decisive lead. CSKA vs. Khimki isn't just any game. It's one of the biggest games of the season. A lot of young players proved unprepared for a game of this intensity.
