Vasily Karasev: "We played well and stopped them"

Zenit boss Vasily Karasev summed up the match that gave the blue-white-sky blues a 2-0 lead in the quarterfinal series against Avtodor.
Василий Карасев: «Вовремя сыграли агрессивно от прохода»
This was an important away win to give us a 2-0 lead in the series. I'm completely satisfied with our defence. We stopped Avtodor's quick break and at their home floor, we played well and stopped them. The main problem we had was in the first half, when we lost 11 rebounds to Avtodor. 

As for the attack, we played aggressively, we had many opportunities to shoot, as for our free throws, our percentage was terrible. Our guys scored only 1 out of 7. But we managed to rebuild in time and play more aggressively.

Was this game more difficult in comparison with the game in St. Petersburg. What are you expecting on Tuesday?

The first game was not easy either. For 2-3 minutes before the end of the match there was a gap of 4 points. This season Avtodor showed that they can fight on an equal footing with any team, CSKA, Loko, UNICS, especially at home. We do not expect an easy game.
