Jonas Kazlauskas: Our opponents decided to play something other than basketball
CSKA Moscow coach Jonas Kazlauskas criticised Bilbao’s style of play after defeating the Basque club in the Euroleague replay.
«It was a hard game. Our opponents chose a strange route: they didn’t play basketball, but something else. I lost count of all their fouls and provocations. Then again, I am grateful to them as it was a good preparation for the difficult matches ahead. We are used to going 20 points ahead and then relaxing. But this time we got nervous, the players were provoked and had to restrain their reaction. Did you see how many times the Spanish players went for the opponent and not the ball?! You can’t even tell if it’s basketball, or ice-hockey. We made more three-pointers today, than two-pointers, so I can’t say that we did a great job today. We need to learn,» the CSKA boss told Sports.ru.
