Quote

Denis Zakharov, Zenit BC Guard:

The team is ready to play, we had enough time to recover after the game against UNICS, prepare for the next opponent. Astana is a team mainly consisting of local basketball players, but there are also two foreign guys. We prepared and dismantled the opponent, we will play for the win. The team is mostly young, but there are also experienced basketball players. Plus, many players are part of the national team, they have been playing together for a long time and know each other. We need to go out and fight!
