"You have to be focused and aggressive against Khimki", Deck said.
Pablo Laso and Gabriel Deck spoke about Khimki-Real Madrid, which will be played at Arena Mytishchi, in round 20 of the Euroleague. The Whites coach said: "It is important that the team gets back to winning ways after the defeat against CSKA. We have to move on because we are now facing Khimki, a very dangerous opponent. The last month has been very eventful because we've had a lot of players out and that's caused us to lose pace".
"We have to overcome those situations and continue to play our game. It's true that we've done some good tactical things, but we're going to keep working and improving so that we don't miss out on games like CSKA".
Second match in a row in Russia
"Khimki is a team with a lot of offensive talent, they have very athletic players at the post and good shooters like Timma and Jerebko. Shved is a player who generates a lot of points for himself and his teammates. You have to be careful to lower their offensive efforts because otherwise they become a very dangerous team. We have to stay solid during the game".

Laso: "Khimki is a very dangerous opponent"

"When you play so many games you have big wins and losses that hurt. It's a journey that's beginning to be long and I hope it lasts".
Deck: "Let's try to pick up and get back on track"
"I'm happy to be back with the team and looking forward to being a hundred percent. Every away game is difficult. We're going to have to be focused and aggressive against a tough team that plays very well. In the Euroleague we compete at 100% because it is a very demanding competition".
"Khimki are a competitive team and they have good scorers. We are going to pick up and get back on track. We have been working match by match and week by week the concentration and intensity to face the rival".
