BC Ventspils Head Coach Gundars Vetra:
"We used a lot of power to come back in the last quarter, and we did it. But when experienced players miss their easy shots, it breaks the spirit of the team a little. Certainly, we are sorry to lose, but we will try to play much stronger in the EuroChallenge. I cannot say that the winner of this series was defined in the first game. I'm satisfied with these games because Azovmash is a team of different level. The key player tonight was Daniel Ewing. He makes complicated decisions, and for defense they are difficult to solve. Whether he misses or makes them, it's one thing, another is the result of his actions."
Azovmash Head Coach Aco Petrovic:
"Tonight we had to achieve a big result. Three of our players couldn't help us. We started the game with too many mistakes, but later resumed the control. Today Pecherov and Kolchenko played better. We let the opponents score 65 points; We still work on our defense and will win games by defense. We can defend better, but I'm satisfied with it for the moment."
Azovmash player Bogdan Bayda:
"I want to congratulate our fans with entering the Eurocup. We fought for all players who were not allowed to play for us. Not everything is great, but we are working to improve. Tonight we had our gym, our fans and that helped much."
