"First of all, congratulations to Khimki for the win. I believe that it was a balanced game in many aspects of it, in which we didn't do well. We made a lot of mistakes and paid a high price for them. Trailing almost all the way made it difficult for us to have several consecutive good moments and when we did it, we fell again, making mistakes that we have to fix as a team if we want to compete at this level. Obviously, I have to give credit to Khimki, which has a great team, very versatile players, very mobile, able to score, and it was difficult to control them. Losing at home in the EuroLeague is tough, but that's it. We know it is a long regular season and if you want to win, you need to play well, because opponents are always very strong, as Khimki proved today, getting a well-deserved win that must help us get better in the future. Defense has to be a team effort and I am not worried much about individuals playing defense. Jeff [Taylor] did the job he was asked to do and made two or three mistakes, which Shved punished. In general, he did a good job, just as we asked him to do. He probably did some of the best stuff we did in the game tonight. I am more worried about defense, in general, because they hurt us in some of our defensive rules. We have to make clear that we made mistakes tonight. We lacked being solid, especially on offense, but also on defense, making clear mistakes. We lacked patience on offense, passing the ball, playing as a team. We didn't set good screens, didn't roll enough, didn't give extra passes and only had 5 assists in the first half. They are a strong, physical team, very good in one-on-one opportunities, and we needed to move them a bit, but didn't do it. We played better in transition than in five-on-five offenses and didn't have good shooting percentages, not good enough to win the game."
