Dimitris Itoudis, CSKA head coach:
Congratulations to Fener for their win; they were much better in overtime. But if we want to see the whole game, we started very well and did exactly what we wanted both offensively and defensively. It was a pretty good defensive night for us. Although the scoreboard says 95 points, 20 were in overtime. But we gave up a lot of balls as a result of their pressure and some offensive mistakes and bad spacing. We had 23 turnovers and gave Fener the opportunity to score some easy baskets. In overtime the first couple of minutes decided the outcome and we couldnt bounce back. Were still first in the standings, we have wise players and we will bounce back for sure.
