Big margin or not?

In two and a half quarters of the game vs Lokomotiv-Kuban our team has confidently decided the outcome. CSKA looked so convincing during this period that the final margin looks modest.

CSKA vs. Lokomotiv Kuban: 87-70 (+17)

Jonas Kazlauskas, CSKA head coach:
The game can be divided into two parts. In the first we had big advantage. And the reserves got a chance to play. But they looked not so good. The opponents used zone defense, let us shoot from the perimeter, but the guys did not feel confident, they did not score, we did not move well. Therefore the second part was not so spectacular, it was a bit nervous. I told the team in the locker room after the game: in the big team like CSKA the bench should bring more energy into the game, they should not think about improving the stats. But it appeared that the starters played aggressive and the reserves did not press the opponents. Still I can note that I am glad with the way we reacted on our loss in Istanbul.
