CEZ Basketball Nymburk
"First of all I'm really happy for the win; it´s a very important win for us for different reasons. We lost the first game in the Eurocup in Oostende and also lost a game in Donetsk in the VTB League. Our schedule is not an easy one because of lot of travelling. But it was crucial for us to win the home game to protect our home court. We were mentally focused. We struggled in some parts of the game, but got some good executions. Rasid Mahalbasic did a good job forcing their main guy Zizic into fouls trouble. Also Scottie Reynolds was very active, scoring for himself and creating for his teammates."

"I would like to congratulate Nymburk for the win. They were better than us. I think that tonight we played much better than the game before. I saw some progress, but we still have problems with turnovers and three-point shooting. These two things were very important for us in this game. This is what we lack to take another step in our game."
