Khimki head coach Rimas Kurtinaitis said that problems with rebounds were the main reason for the team’s defeat against Barcelona in the 19th round of the Euroleague (75:87).

Khimki head coach Rimas Kurtinaitis:

“I congratulate Barcelona and coach Sarunas Jasikevicius on a good game and victory.

Many moments of the game were good, especially in terms of defense. However, today we have serious problems with rebounds, we took 22 rebounds less, thus allowing the opponent to make 22 additional attacks. This was the key to winning the guests.

We train normally, but we can’t keep concentration for forty minutes. We were preparing for this match and knew how Barcelona would defend, but we applied our best practices very episodically. One of the biggest problems is not sticking to the game plan.

There are difficulties, and after so many lost matches it is not so easy psychologically to raise the team. In this regard, we need to improve in some things: if we have problems with hitting one game, then today we have a problem with rebounds, and the problem is obvious. Difficult, but what to do. I have said more than once: no one will help us, only we ourselves, ”the Khimki official website reports Kurtinaitis as saying.
