"This was a high-level game with two great teams, two traditional teams in European basketball. CSKA is a really talented team with a lot of players that can score easily and we had some problems defensively at the beginning of the game, I think we didn’t start the game well and allowed them to score 17 points in the first five minutes. So that was very important. After that slowly we tried to improve our defense, especially at the beginning of the second half. CSKA scored less points than in the beginning and with some shots from the outside, we tied the game. At that period, when the game was 81-81, I think 1 offensive rebound made by CSKA resulted in a basket and foul. Then it was 5 points, 86-81. And I think at the end it was very difficult to comeback, even though we fought. It was a good game between two very good teams and now we focus on the playoffs. "
