"This loss brushes away our good win in Zagreb. This game is like a wasted opportunities game. At the end we let the game be decided by the basketball gods. We were able to win the game, but we lost the ball in the last possession because we panicked."
STALBERGS, ARTURS
Nizhny Novgorod
"I want to congratulate my players because it’s our first win of this season. Lietkabelis is very good, very experienced team who had a bunch of players with Euroleague experience."
