KIROLBET Baskonia Vitoria Gasteiz
"First of all, I am very happy because I believe it was a good win, especially after the way we started the game. Khimki took the game to a very physical level and we struggled to rebound and come back on defense. They were dominating us, but we reacted very well, especially our bench players. We changed the game rhythm through defensive intensity. That allowed us to dominate the defensive rebounds and run. We played very well in the second and third quarters, even though we didn't have a good start in the fourth quarter, losing our rhythm. We played a little bit worse in the fourth quarter, but I give credit to the team for the way it bounced back and am very happy about it. We did it through intensity, which the way that, in my opinion, games must be won. A lot of players - Vildoza, Diop, Garino - gave us extra intensity, along with others who were on the court already. I believe that we shouldn't make many plans or calculations. We have to focus on the next game. If we lose in Valencia, who are playing really well at home, maybe Maccabi can win and everything will look tough. I hope we keep our chances alive when we play against Maccabi in Round 29. If we are alive by then, we can talk about calculations, but until then, we have to think of the next game only."
