At the start of the season, PARMA managed to play only two games, winning both. For the first time in history, the Permians beat CSKA Moscow (95:97), making an incredible comeback from losing -22 points, and then defeated «Avtodor» Saratov (70:93) and earned themselves second spot in the standings.

Drazen Anzulovich, head coach of BC Enisey:
I have deep respect for PARMA. Having watched the first games of this season, I want to note that they played as a whole, fought all together. And they deserve respect for a worthy victory over CSKA.
I expect my players to have a different attitude and a different mood for our trip to Perm than in previous outings. Yes, there are objective reasons that, due to a lack of physical condition, they to some extent tried to pace their strength and stamina and therefore used energy incorrectly and were not ready to play in the state needed for the game, I was unhappy with this in Kazan too, and with CSKA.
I hope and think that we will be ready to show a different attitude and a different game on this trip.
