Head Coaches

MATIC, VESELIN
Kalev Cramo Tallinn
"After losing the last couple of games we needed this win badly. That is why we felt pressured and had a bad start. The key to the victory was Valmo Kriisa's three at the end. I'm glad we won."
POROPAT, SILVANO
Ludwigsburg
"We started out good but allowed Kalev to come in the game, even though, they had a bad start. We could not defend them today. So we need to keep on working hard to get better."

Players

ARBET, GREGOR
Kalev Cramo Tallinn
"I'm very happy that we won because we had just lost two close games in a row, so we really needed this win. We knew this team would play a fast game and at first we struggled with that. But eventually we still pulled it through."
PREWITT, CHAD
Ludwigsburg
"It was a tough game but we ended up losing. They are tough inside and on the boards. That cost us the game today."
