"We prepared seriously for the match against EWE Baskets. Our idea was to make special emphasis with our defense against the main scorers of our opponents, such as Paulding and Lukauskis. One of our key players, Marco Popovic, had been injured seriously the previous match we played in the Russian League. We missed Popovic very much, and the rest of the players had to share his part to make up for his absence on the court. As a result, the team came together and we have found our team chemistry."
