THE TAKE

It is a never-seen-before battle between teams with different momentums. CSKA has been really solid despite being without power forwards Victor Khryapa and Demetris Nichols. Andrey Vorontsevich has been outstanding thus far and getting plenty of help from Kyle Hines and Sasha Kaun under the baskets. Miro Bilan, Mario Delas and Tomislav Zubcic must be ready for a physical challenge against the entire CSKA frontcourt. Cedevita is without Roko Ukic and Marko Tomas, which means Nemanja Gordic and Ante Delas will share the point guard duties, while Fran Pilepic and Luka Babic will see most of the playing time at the wings. Gordic and Delas will not have it easy against Aaron Jackson and Milos Teodosic. With Nando De Colo and Manu Markoishvili sidelined, Sonny Weems and Vitaly Fridzon will have the tough mission to guard Babic and Pilepic, respectively.

Quotes Head Coaches

REPESA, JASMIN
Cedevita Zagreb
"The game against CSKA is an opportunity for my players to show what they can do at this moment. CSKA are favorites to win this game, but we won't wave the white flag. This should be one of the easiest games for us because we are underdogs against CSKA. We must play our best and that's it. CSKA have physically much stronger players in the paint and they also switch a lot on defense. After playing very good at World Championship with Serbia, Milos Teodosic plays great this season and he will be the biggest threat for us."
ITOUDIS, DIMITRIS
CSKA Moscow
"Cedevita has our full respect because of the continuity of their club’s and coaching philosophy. They try to raise the young players who match the lack of experience with their energy and enthusiasm. The opponents also have experienced players but unfortunately their roster is not full now because of couple of injuries. Cedevita has a lot of good athletes; they play aggressively on ends of the floor. They have some creators off pick-n-rolls like Gordic, Ante Delas and Babic, shooters like Babic and Pilepic, stretch fours and inside game from Bilan, and that gives them balance on offense. They started the season 0-2 and they will definitely be extra-motivated against us. So despite their record we don’t expect it to be an easy game, nothing is easy in our life, nothing is given. We will work hard to try to take what we deserve."

Players

UKIC, ROKO
Cedevita Zagreb
"I know CSKA players very well. Playing for Panathinaikos, I played five games against CSKA in last year's Euroleague playoffs. They are probably the best team in Group B. This game is a big challenge for us, but it is also a great opportunity for our young team. As a team we must focus on our game and do our best not to repeat mistakes we have made in our previous games. I'm coming back from an injury, but i feel great and I hope I will stay healthy for the rest of the season."
HINES, KYLE
CSKA Moscow
"Cedevita is a young and enthusiastic team. We expect them to play a physical game, to fight hard. It will be a tough game as we play on the road but we want to continue our streak, to improve our game. We have to show the best of how we play recently, to play defense, rebound, play as a team. If we do it we will have good chances."
