Our team had to work hard but still awarded Spartak with its first loss in Russian Championship. CSKA had to play great second quarter and to fight in the fourth to win.

CSKA vs. Spartak St.Petersburg: 77-71

Dusko Vujosevic, CSKA head coach:
Spartak knew that they have a chance and they did everything possible. We still have tiredness, shortened roster, nervousness after the game against AJ Milano. Thats why we had some ups and downs. We started bad, we played good second quarter and pat of third quarter, we went up by 14 after some substitutions then they closed the gap to one shot after some our substitutions again. Spartak has a number of players who can score thats why I had a fear in these moments. It was important for us to win. We need time to get out injured players back, to solve some problems. We have a number of players with authority, but you have to prove it with the quality. We are trying to give a chance to every player but you have to show that you deserve the chance. We are practicing less now and our intensity is less, our doctors are doing everything possible to help the team to recover. As one saying says: if you are trying to cure the flu, it will take 7 days to recover, if you dont do that you need one week. We are suffering not only because of dealing with time difference but because of playing 3 difficult games in 5 days. I think we will get back to rhythm from Monday. Khryapa will be able to return in 7-10 days.
