Emil Rajkovic, CSKA head coach:

Our opponent had tough and physical big men, so it was a problem for us to fight under the boards. But in the end the team showed great character, made extra effort, managed to cut big deficit and brought the game to the moment when we had chances to win it. After two overtimes we, coaches, decided not to continue because on this stage of a preseason it is too early to load the teams like this, it can lead to injuries. Anyway, the game was very useful for our preparation, this experience will definitely help us in the season.
