"First, I would like to thank St. Petersburg for their win. I am glad that they took that game seriously. This was a great win for us and has showed the character of this team. Even though we were 20-plus points down I knew we could win because I know the character of my team. Our opponent, Cibona, is a very good team, too. Players who did not play in our fist game, Zubcic and Hamilton, played today, so I knew this Cibona would be a different team. It is hard to keep focus when you are up 24 points and that's what happened to them."
