The beginning of the game was in great contrast to its continuation. In the first minutes lack of team work and concentration of the home side led to numerous turnovers, and the Slovak team got the lead (6:2). The rest of the first period both teams were equal, but at the end of it Dynamo was beginning to push their game.
A couple of quick attacks in the second quarter led to a 13:0-run by Dynamo. The home side took a comfortable lead (57:24).
This game was one of the best of the year for Dynamo’s playmakers Latysheva and her substitute Demagina, who showed a good balanced teamplay.
In attack one could also point out Vodickova for her smart solutions. Because of their physical strength inside Dynamo made lots of fast breaks. Their powerful centers helped to create domination underneath the basket.
After the 3rd quarter the game was already decided. Dynamo's huge 78:40-lead made them certain winners of the match.
MVP of the game: Dynamo forward Kamila Vodickova with 18 points.
Semen Khalipsky, Head Coach, Dynamo Moscow:
"Tonight we tried to play more a defensive game, because we have seen the games of Delta and if one lets them lay in offence, lets them feel the ball, there could be a great trouble: as in the game of Delta against MiZo Pesci. Luckily we made a strong defense and we had a good chance to try different tactical schemes in this game and gave a chance to play for everybody."
Vladimir Karnay, Head Coach, Delta ICP Kosice:
"We didn’t play our game tonight as we wanted. It seemed as if our players were afraid to play on the perimeter. It was static, without any movement. The second quarter was decisive. Individually I would like to point out the game shown by Dynamo’s playmaker Latysheva and ever young Baranova. The aims of our team remain the same- to get in to the playoffs."
