Khimki lost to UNICS Kazan in a VTB United League road game — 76-83 (17-25, 17-16, 20-18, 22-24). Now on Thursday, November 26, 2020 our team in Germany will face ALBA Berlin in a EuroLeague round 11 game. Tip-off at 22:00 msk.
Rimas Kurtinaitis, Khimki Moscow Region head coach:
“I would like to congratulate UNICS on this win, they fought well and started this game well. I think the ending was 50-50, we were just unlucky with the last throw. We had problems with three-pointers, although there are a lot of snipers in the team, but today they could not score at all. This is the key moment and its consequence — defeat. We lost to a good team on the road, although we hoped to win, as we always do when we go to Kazan. I don't want to talk about individual players. When we win, everyone wins, and everyone loses. I think we just didn't have enough activity, but it was the third game at this week. In the end, we didn't have enough composure, we made a number of mistakes, for example, we didn't score from under the hoop, although tactically we did everything right, giving the ball to the strongest player at the right moment. We just didn't have enough sporting happiness, despite the fact that we didn't play our best game”.
