Wonders and horrors

The game of principal opponents was beautiful in means of intrigue but not so bright if you look at quality of basketball. CSKA lost comfortable lead in the third quarter, barely managed to go to overtime and lost the game on buzzer-beating three.

CSKA vs. Khimki Moscow Region: 88-89 ОТ

Jonas Kazlauskas, CSKA head coach:
It’s a pity that we lost at home in a game, which we controlled in the first half, where we had big advantage. We had a number of problems in the second half, we could not understand each other both on defense and offense. We were able to reach the overtime but lost to Khimki team who played good basketball tonight. Nuances decided a lot: Holden and Siskauskas missed important free throws; we could not rebound when we needed it. After good first half our big men seemed tired, they were unable to play as good as they can. And the main thing: we have to analyze why we lost after having 17-point advantage.
