"It was a very tough game. I have to congratulate my players because we did a great job in intensity and aggressiveness, and especially on defense. We even played a good game on offense. We started intense, that gave us a little advantage of 6-7 points. For sure Khimki started playing with two fours on the court at the same time, which caused us a little bit of trouble. When they popped up they scored easy three-pointers because we were trying to protect the rim. But we kept playing defense, kept believing in ourselves. We got back in the third quarter. We hit a few baskets that gave us a chance for calm situation at the end of the game. We got two fast breaks from very good defense, and a 10-point gap with 4 minutes left to play. We thought it is enough, but this is a very good team and they came back with two three-pointers and a three-point play so we were back in a tight game. But Sekulic and Popovic with their character kept us in tough moments believing, and scoring. We really looked like the team we were looking to be."
