BC Khimki vs. Astana — 73-5620 october 2019

Khimki Moscow Region grabbed confident home win over Astana Kazakhstan in a VTB United League game — 73-56 (20-13, 16-12, 16-20, 21-11). Now on Thursday, October 24, 2019 our team in Germany will face FC Bayern Munich in a EuroLeague round 4 game. Tip-off at 21:30 msk.


Rimas Kurtinaitis, Khimki Moscow Region head coach:

“I'm happy for this win. I'm glad how we play in defense, as the guys made effort. There were some problems in offense, but at the moment we see how to survive because we play without three point guards, only with Zaytsev as a pure point guard. Today we played hard, but could have scored better. This is the very thing we should work on. The most important thing is that we played well on rebounding, played tough in defense, didn't let our opponent take balls and made many steals. Before tough game with FC Bayern Munich it was a good training matchup”.
