Natalija Hejkova, Head Coach Dynamo Moscow: We didn't show our best game tonight. We had very big advantage in first game, so tonight it was hard to motivate the players. Anyway, we played well and qualified to the semifinals of FIBA Eurocup - this is the main achievement of this game.
Marina Maljkovic, Head Coach ZKK Hemofarm: We played very bad in the first game, we respected Dynamo, but enough - that's why we had such bad loss. So today it was very hard to beat team so string. But I'm satisfied, cause we played equal game with Dynamo even without our key player.
