Andrei Martyuk: “We lost because we stuck in individual play”

12 points and 6 rebounds of the Loko center did not help the Krasnodar team win over CSKA (73:86).
– Loko looked very good in the first half. What happened next?
– We started really well. Our team defense worked, we didn’t pay attention to any unnecessary things. But in the 3rd quarter, CSKA began to play harder, and we lost our heads a bit – I mean, we began to play more one-on-one against them, and stuck in individual play. We stopped scoring, and they ran away.
– Can we say that that was the question of psychology – you were confused, and they gained confidence?
– We were not confused. Things just happen sometimes. You see, we know how to defeat CSKA. But this does not give us a reason to think that we are favorites in any game against them, that the next game will be easy – this concerns any opponent. Every game is a struggle, especially against CSKA. We beat them only when we fight. But today we only fought in the first half.
