Vitaliy Fridzon, Zenit BC Forward:
We should draw conclusions after the first two games in the series: play aggressively, fight for every ball, for every possession. We saw how calmly the opponent played in Moscow, so we need to show more aggressive basketball, which we showed throughout the playoffs. I think there will be full house tomorrow. We had time for preparation, for scouting. It is necessary to play harder against Milutinov, not to let him relax, on the verge of a foul. We have fans, our own gym, I think they should become our sixth player.
