Lokomotiv Kuban Krasnodar
"This was a totally different game from the first game. We had to keep our level of effort and energy in the third and fourth quarter, we had a couple of empty minutes in the third quarter on offense, but we kept that level on defense. After the first game, we were under pressure and we knew that we could do much better than we did in the first game. Me and the team were not satisfied with how we looked in Kazan in the second half. We tried to improve all these small things – like energy, approach, effort – in the second game. And I can congratulate my players because in the short time – just two days to recover – we came with much better energy. My players really wanted to win this game and I want to congratulate them on what they did. About the game, we played very good defense. We can be satisfied with this. We had some problems on offense but if you play against UNICS, who play good defense all season, then you cannot play your offensive set that easily."
