Brose Bamberg suffered a 72:81 defeat on the 20th matchday of the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague in Moscow against CSKA. The German champions were able to equalize the quarters one, three and four, only quarter two was lost 11:21 and in the end that was too much of a burden. With the exception of Daniel Hackett, who played only seven minutes and was then injured, each player scored in a balanced Brose team.
Ilias Kantzouris: „We came here to compete, we wanted to stay in the game, to fight on both ends. We had some issues in previous games, injury problems so we wanted to make a step of improvement. Defensively we did a good job. We had bad execution offensively, we lost our rhythm, lost our concentration in the beginning of fourth quarter. We also gave to the opponent many cheap free throws during the game. So in the end the game was not as close as we would like it to be. We tried but we couldn’t make it. We also had problem with Daniel [Hackett]; we still have to see how severe his injury is. We have to fight through injury problems that we have in this tough schedule.“
