"The most important was to win the game. It’s a very close group and now we have both wins against St. Petersburg, so we get one win plus the point spread. With two more games, we’re looking good. We just have to get that next home win and to get qualified. We were more aggressive [in the second half]. This is a fantastic team. Karasev scored 20 points [in the first half] and he’s the most important player on this team. They have a lot of talent, but he’s the motor. So we really did a good job on him. He’s tough and he almost pulled out a win on the very last possession. So that was the key: our defensive reaction in the second half. "
