CSKA Moscow head coach Dimitris Itoudis was very happy with his players and their performance in the EuroLeague Championship Game.

Here is what the Greek coach told reporters in the post-game press conference:

“Congratulations to my players. We have a great group of competitors, a very united group of people with no personal agendas, who have been sacrificing their bodies, free time, working extras, being devoted and ready to get criticized, provoked and challenged every time.

A lot of times they are getting their timeouts and I didn’t call a timeout, because I told them that they’re going to help. Come to the huddle over there every time there’s a free throw, the referee makes a call. They were ready to go. I was ready to let them run the timeout, Nando was talking in two timeouts.”

CSKA Moscow defeated Anadolu Efes in the Championship Game (83-91) and claimed its eighth EuroLeague title.
