Head Coaches

BLATT, DAVID
Dynamo Moscow
"Our team played an exceptional game. And we had to because we played against the co-leader of our group and we had to do our best to beat this team. Maroussi has proven this year the ability to beat top teams. I said some weeks ago, it’s not about whose playing, but how we are playing. If we play as a team like we played today, we can compete with anybody. It was great to see Darjus Lavrinovic played at such a high level because that is what we brought him here to do."
MARKOPOULOS, SOULIS
Maroussi Costa Coffee
"Congratulations to Dynamo. And congratulations to coach Blatt. Dynamo is a very good team. They played excellent basketball. We didn't play well, especially at the beginning, which encouraged Dynamo to play much better. We hope that in two weeks when we play in Athens, we will play much better and we will try to beat them."
