— I want to say a big thank you to Peter, the fans, the guys for the warm welcome. It is nice to come back here. Played with double energy, double dedication. An important the game was, plus the first match for me against Zenit. Wanted to show what I’m capable of. The game was quite successful for us. All I want to congratulate with the victory. I know how to play in this arena, these fans. All teams who come to St. Petersburg, always had difficulties playing against Zenit. We came here not for an easy walk. The first quarter showed that when Zenit’s fresh, they run, play aggressive. The most important thing was not to miss any jerks. The first quarter played on equal terms. We knew that the enemy podsidet at the end of the fourth quarter — how many matches they lost. Like all fought to the end, but something was missing. Also pulling, pulling, pulling, and probably in the second half we were fresher and this has affected. Skipped a beat if the heart at the outlet to the floor? Before the game there was some small jitters from thoughts nowhere to go. And when I did, the yips was not, on the contrary it was very nice. Showed video — thank you very much, — said Karasev.
Recall that the 26-year-old basketball player from 2016 to 2019 defended the colors of “Zenit”.
