Sergey Yaremenko. Basketball players situated near Moscow “Khimki” have beaten “Zenith” easily, said the head coach of Petersburg club Joan Plaza.
“Zenit” lost to “Khimki” in the match of the seventh round of the Euroleague with a score of 73:87. In this season, the St. Petersburg has not won a single home match. Team Plaza held on the platform of the four games in the Euroleague and two games of VTB United League.
Khimki deserved the win. We again had a poor percentage of hits. We allowed the opponents to score the shots that they weren’t supposed to score. Defended not as good as you need. Didn’t take picks, allowed to run fast breaks. Khimki is a great talent, a deep bench. They beat us easily,” said Plaza at a press conference.
“We had four games in nine days. You need to learn to control my fatigue. Could not afford “Khimki” so easy to take this match. They had a percentage of luck, but we need to focus on their mistakes,” added Plaza.
