Denis Zakharov, Zenit BC Forward:
We tune in to a specific matchup and don’t think about any other things. We have disassembled the video, we are training to fight in the fifth game of the series. In general, the third and fourth matches of the series were good for us despite the fact that we lost in the previous meeting in the end. We ran well, defended well, fulfilled our game plans, played as a team. If we manage to repeat all this and implement it, then we will succeed. We did everything in our power to prevent Ware from scoring the last ball. Both Alex and Sergey did their best, it was basketball. I am glad that the bus with the fans is going to support us. It always helps, charges and supports.
