Dusko Ivanovic, BC Khimki head coach:
"It was a very important game for us. I think we played much better in the second half with good concentration in defense and with big patience in the offense. Important win for the team. I'm a new coach in Khimki and I need practices with my players. But every second and every action I try do it better for the team".
Tyler Honeycutt, BC Khimki forward:
"I think we did a great job. We showed great defense. Other teams scored a lot of points on us, but tonight we played great defense and allowed the opponents to score only 71 points".
