Kirill Temirov: “I fear no one”

We discussed with the Loko forward the key moments of the game against UNICS (90:82), the next opponent, and also found out which team’s games Kirill visits whenever possible.
– How do you rate your performance against UNICS?
– There were ups, there were downs. My goal was to fulfil the coach's task. The support of the fans and the trust of the team gave me a boost. And it helped me a lot.
– Your 3-pointer at the beginning of the 4th quarter put Loko ahead, after which the team kept the lead till the very end. What do you think about in those moments when you stand open on the line and see a ball coming your way?
– About that if it is Kirill Yelatontsev’s pass, then you need to shoot immediately, because after his assists I always score. Well, okay, not always. But if he gives it precisely into my hands, then I score (laughs; Yelatontsev, passing by, also laughs).
– Opponents often get offensive fouls on you. Aren't you afraid to stand in the way of players who weigh much more than you and are rushing towards the hoop at full speed?
– Ah, no. I fear no one.
– CSKA lost two games in a row, at Monday they will probably play very tough against Loko.
– Well, okay. We will be ready for this, we will carefully study the opponent and try to give our 100 percent to win.
– We’ve seen you recently at the women’s amateur league quarterfinals. Did you come to watch your sister Anastasia play for Kropotkin’s Smena?
– Yes. I always watch my sister's games if its possible. That time it was very interesting, they won in extra time. So, if it will not be at the same time with Loko trainig, I will definitely come to support her on April 6 and 7 in their Final Four. Go, Smena!
