— How did you manage to come back from -14 and why didn’t Loko make any long-range shots in the first half of the match?

— The game turned out to be a lot of fun. We pleased the public who, as always, supported us very well at the Basket Hall. A big thank you to our fans. In the first half we didn’t really get our shots at times, but we continued to stay on our line, defend actively and after the break we felt our shot, which helped us come back into the match and to win. But, I repeat, the great atmosphere in the room helped us a lot in this match.

— Did you win solely because of the cool atmosphere or other elements of the game?

— Because we train and practice our shots every day, we believe in the team and our shooting. We did everything right and achieved what we were supposed to achieve.

— How will you celebrate your fourth consecutive victory against CSKA?

“There’s not a lot of time to party and relax. Today we will celebrate a little and tomorrow we will leave for the match against Uralmash in Yekaterinburg.

— Loko has now become a very troublesome opponent for CSKA.

– It turns out that’s how it is. But CSKA is a very strong team. And it is only because we listen to them very seriously and prepare very carefully that it bears fruit. I hope we will continue in the same spirit,” Shcherbenev told the correspondent.
