Head Coaches

Dynamo Moscow
"I want to congratulate my players for the victory. Today they showed a lot of character and heart. It was really hard to prepare for this game with Papadopoulos and Raicevic injured. Hansen played after being sick and missing practice for three days. We started the game well, we led early by 9 points and we played fast. They tried to play zone defense and it caused us many problems. Being without Papadopoulos means playing without an inside game. Our defense helped us and their experienced players made 16 turnovers. We had 11 offensive rebounds, which was very important for us. After the last timeout we were losing by 7 points and I think we played a great 4 minutes after that. We turned the game around and took a 7-point lead. The Euroleague season is very long and it's very important not to lose home games. I hope we'll have some time to rest a little bit. We have no game on Sunday in the Russian League, so we'll work on individual play and we'll have enough time to prepare for the road game against Sopot in Poland."
FRATES, FABRIZIO
Climamio Bologna
"First of all compliments to Dynamo, they fought for this win. We had a real opportunity to win tonight. We led for a long time, we led by 7 points with about 6 or 7 minutes left. I think we played good basketball for 25 minutes, but not the first and last 5 minutes. The last 5 minutes were definitely very important in the game. We committed three turnovers in a row and Dynamo took the opportunity to change the game. Regarding Belinelli, it was my decision for him to play 20 minutes. I felt he wasn't right tonight. When I substituted him for Cavaliero, he gave a good effort to the team. But Belinelli was on the floor at the end of the fourth quarter and he made some key shots, so I don't think he was out of the game."

Players

FOTSIS, ANTONIS
Dynamo Moscow
"This is a great victory for our team because we had so many problems with injured players and also Hansen was sick. But we fought all 40 minutes, we didn't lose hope when Climamio led by 7 points and finally we celebrated. Of course, I am satisfied with my game tonight but I always try to do the same: to help my team. And tonight Dynamo won because all players gave their maximum."
SHUMPERT, PRESTON
Climamio Bologna
"We played very well during 35 minutes but the problem is that the game lasts for 40. Also, Dynamo is a very good team. Yes, I believed that we were very close to win when we took a 7-point advantage, but then Hansen scored two incredible three-point shots, they were back on the game and finally won. But, I am not disappointed, we lost but we play each game better and better and I am sure that we can reach our target and play the Top 16 in the Euroleague."
