CSKA - Barcelona: 76-57

Ettore Messina, CSKA Head Coach

- This game was not so important for our qualification to Top-16. It is all about the names - everybody from CSKA and Barcelona understood how important it was to win that game of principle today. We made many mistakes at first, received 3 block-shots from Vazquez. CSKA didn't control the situation on the flour. But then my team was smart enough to start thinking again. And after some up and downs in the first three quarters we finally were consistent in the end. I am happy with our defense in the second half - it was brilliant. We were excellent on Navarro on the defensive end and they guarded pick'n'rolls well.
