CSK VVS-Samara - CSKA: 66-97

Ettore Messina, CSKA head coach:

- I would like to thank CSK VVS and their head coach Valery Tikhonenko for moving the game to Moscow. It is a big help for us with our current schedule. As for the game itself we had a chance to give the young players some minutes on the court.

Valery Tikhonenko, CSK VVS head coach:

- We agreed to move the game to Moscow. CSKA is Russian beat club and in my opinion the other teams should give maximum help for our Euroleague representative. The game was tough for us. The trip from Czech Republic where we played the last game was not an easy one. So we were not in the top conditions. But of course the other reason was CSKA high level of the performance.
