The Nizhny Novgorod head coach, Arthurs Shtalbergs summed up the results of the match, in which the blue-white-sky blues defeated Nizhny Novgorod 101-88.
Arthurs Shtalbergs: "It is always difficult to play against a team like Zenit"

Before the game, we were forced to make changes in our tactics because of injuries, at the beginning of the game we could not get going. We showed character to get even, but at the end of the game we did not have enough resources. It is always difficult to play against a team like Zenit, but this match will be a good experience for us and our young players who will make something of themselves.

How would you rate the performance of players at the end?

They are young guys. Popov played well in attack, but twice allowed the opponents to shoot. For example, Landry scored a lot of points. He still lacks experience, but we are working with him and I hope he will do better in future.
