Anton Pushkov, Zenit BC Center:

We had time to prepare for this game and for the entire first round of the playoffs, we are full of energy, we have healed all injuries, we are in full combat readiness. Enisey is a very strong team with players who use their potential well. The same Vlad Trushkin: we know what he can do. They had time to prepare for this game, they look good now. They have a young squad, a very big desire, and they want to prove themselves. We have to use our offensive potential and defend well. I don’t want to speak unequivocally about our advantage in size, but we know our strengths and we will use them. We are waiting for a full arena of fans!
