the head coach “Khimki” Rimas Kurtinaitis commented on the defeat of his players from St. Petersburg “Zenit” (81:83) in the match of the regular championship of Euroleague basketball.
“Today’s result can not but rejoice. After a couple of matches we have had problems. We had a very tough match against CSKA, but he was a few days ago. We must be ready for serious games on the platform, where you must defeat, – quotes the words of Kurtinaitis press-service “Himok”. I don’t know how, but we need to win, but today our energy was not up to par, as well as concentration. The reverse situation was three days ago against CSKA, today we’ve made a lot of mistakes in defense, especially against pick-and-roll. Perhaps some of us too well thought about yourself.”
“Khimki” have suffered in the Euroleague third defeat in a row and occupy the ninth place in standings, and “Zenit” won a second victory in their last five games, is located on the 18-th line. In the next match of the tournament, the players of Khimki 14 Jan will take Valencia, and St. Petersburg on 15 January the house will play with “Basque country”.
