CSKA Moscow head coach Dimitris Itoudis is confident that his players will do their best to reclaim the home-court advantage and eliminate Baskonia.
Here is what the Greek coach said in the post-game press conference following the loss to the Baques in Game 2:
“Of course, fatigue was a factor. I promise to the fans, that were incredible tonight, that we’re gonna give our whole self to either win the series there or bring the series back. We’re gonna look to our mirrors and talk a little bit.
Whoever is not decisive, whoever is not determined, whoever doesn’t show the right approach and isn’t mentally ready, I will say it, but I think everybody is.
I have huge trust in my players on how they are going to approach this third game. Huge trust. We believe in us, especially when no one else does. Let’s have some haters, no problem.”
Games 3 and 4 will be played in Vitoria on Wednesday (24/04) and Friday (26/04).
