BC Khimik player Vitaliy Kovalenko
The first half of the game was good. In the second half we made a few mistakes, and the opponent has punished us. We struggled, tried but did not make three-point shots. Krasnye Krylia is a very good team, very experienced. I think they are one of the contenders in the Eurochallenge this season.
BC Khimik head coach Zvezdan Mitrovic
We had only one day to prepare for this game. But, I am happy with the game, especially our defence. It was unlucky for us, that our key players missed a lot of three-point shots. But I do not blame them for that. Team Krasnye Krylia has a wonderful roster, they showed a good game and deserved to win.
BC Krasnye Krylia player Omar Thomas
Khimik is a very difficult team, but, nevertheless, we have got to play well on defence. The telling stat was that we allowed them to gather 18 offensive rebounds. It should not be, we have to learn from this.
BC Krasnye Krylia head coach Sergey Bazarevich
First, we are pleased to win. I believe that Khimik are a very awkward opponent. We were relaxed in the first half and not ready for the intensity level which Khimik brought. But, the second half was much better.
