Andrey Zubkov, Zenit BC Forward:
The team’s condition is normal. We were lucky that we flew by charter to Kazakhstan and there were no transfers. We managed to recover, as we are used to this mode. We played in the Euroleague every two days, so everything is fine. Nizhny Novgorod is a team of fighters. There are only Russians left in the squad, they always play till the end. It’s always hard to play with Nizhny Novgorod.
