Dimitris Itoudis, CSKA head coach:
It was tough game as we expected. We had bad start offensively and defensively which cost us. We played good second and third quarters but that was not enough coming to the clutch moments, we weren’t concentrated enough, we shot the ball really bad, our important players had really bad percentage on twos and threes. We gave up too much second chances to Fenerbahce-Ulker so they deserved to win.

Zeljko Obradovic, Fenerbahce-Ulker head coach:
It was a tough and important game. Before we came here I said that CSKA now is probably the best team in Europe by the results and the quality of the game. Even this game does not change my opinion, I still think CSKA is the favorite to win the Euroleague. Something which is really satisfies me is the way we played, does not matter win or loss, I would like to see my team playing like this all the time, to trust in our possibilities. In Istanbul both teams had a chance to win the game, now we were more lucky. We will continue to fight and we will see how the Top 16 ends.
