CSKA Moscow head coach Dimitris Itoudis expressed some complaints with what transpired in the loss of his team to Khimki Moscow.

Here’s what Itoudis said, per VTB League:

“I usually begin my press conference by congratulating the winning team. I will remain a gentleman and do that again. But if you watch objectively, you’ll see two different stories and can decide who was the main protagonist on the court today. We tried to play basketball.

We know that you need to emphasize offense and exciting play in basketball. Shved had a great game on offense; Rodriguez had a great game on offense. But you were at the game, you saw everything. If you are honest with yourselves, you saw what happened and understand everything. My players committed 20 turnovers, but half of them didn’t just happen; there was some other reason. I will remain a gentleman. But look at the final possessions. Simply watch this game objectively. One of my colleagues, who is no longer working as a head coach, would have said that today even the blind would have seen.”
