"First of all, congratulations to CSKA. We didn't play the first half the way we needed to control a very, very high-scoring, talented offensive team. We defended better in the third quarter, but not well in the fourth quarter, again. We need to try and take that moment in the third quarter, and we missed it. CSKA was the better team today, no question. We can be proud that we beat that team once this season, because it is a great team. We live to fight another day. Today, we didn't get the kind of performance from our big guys, with the exception of Furkan Aldemir, who did a great job, and Luke Harangody, who did well in his minutes. Other than that, we didn't get the kind of performance [from our big guys] we needed to get, but that happens… Milos Teodosic, when he is healthy and in the moment, he is just a terrific guard, at the highest level. There is not a better backcourt that Nando De Colo and Teodosic in Europe, anywhere, than these two guys together. Then they come off the bench with Vitaly [Fridzon], Higgins, Jackson... it never ends. They keep throwing soldiers at you and there is nowhere to hide. But those two guys are the best backcourt combination in Europe, in my mind. And there are some good ones, but not better than these two together."
