Dimitris Itoudis, CSKA head coach:
We kept a very good offensive team which, after the slow start that they had at the beginning of the season with five losses, in the next 15 they managed to grab big wins either on the road or at home. Not only that but from the 70 points that they were scoring in this slow start, they went up to 85. So if we consider that fact, it is important, though they were having some significant misses over here, some players they were missing because of injuries… but who is not missing? We had this… It is the first time that it happened, that a CSKA player is getting injured in the warm-up. [Andrey Vorontsevich] got injured in the warm-up; he twisted his ankle. So probably this is the season for whoever stays safe, but we are going to fight, definitely, through adversities, and I congratulate my team for fighting through adversities all this year. We are going to continue about that. This is a good lesson for us. We are just going forward, we will never be going back.
