Macvan helps Milan win at Darussafaka for 2-0 start to season

EA7 Emporio Armani Milan edged Darussafaka Dogus Istanbul 80-81 in a thriller on Thursday at Volkswagen Arena. Milan claimed its second straight victory, while Darussafaka fell to 1-1. Milan Macvan starred with 19 points for the winners, while Jamel Mclean posted 11 points and 8 rebounds. Mantas Kalnietis also scored 11 and Alessandro Gentile scored 10. Milan won in part due to its 42-26 edge in rebounding, which helped to mask its 19 turnovers. For Darussafaka, Adrien Moerman led the way with 20 points on 4-of-7 three-point shooting. Brad Wanamaker added 16 points and 6 assists, James Anderson scored 14 and Scottie Wilbekin contributed 13 points. Milan visits Olympiacos Piraeus in its next EuroLeague game and Darussafaka travels to Unics Kazan.

Milan led 23-24 after an entertaining opening quarter. Darussafaka stayed close in the second quarter, but the visitors remained ahead 41-46 as they headed to the locker rooms. After the break, Darussafaka closed the gap, but Milan remained ahead 58-60 at the end of the third quarter. Macvan’s triple gave Milan a 66-73 edge midway through the fourth-quarter, but Moerman and Wanamaker each scored 4 points in a 10-0 run that put Darussafaka ahead. The go-ahead points came as a result of a technical foul on Macvan for arguing a call. However Mantas Kalnietis’s triple put Milan back in front, 76-77, inside the final minute and the visitors held on down the stretch.

Head Coaches

BLATT, DAVID
Darussafaka Dogus Istanbul
“Congratulations to Milano. Tough game, could have gone either way. Sometimes the game comes down to making a play or not making a play, and at the very end we did not make those plays. We changed the line-up today but Milan responded and it still resulted in us not starting as well as we would have liked. I think coach Repesa is right [that Milan won the game on rebounds]. When you’re smaller you have to fight harder and we didn’t do that in the first half. In the second half we responded but it cost us. What happens at the start affects what happens at the end and it was a major factor.”
REPESA, JASMIN
EA7 Emporio Armani Milan
“What happened with Macvan [the technical foul] I cannot accept. It was a critical moment of the game and allowed Darussafaka to get ahead. We had a really good approach to rebounding, and we won the game with that.”

We got to stop digging ourselves into a hole. We’ve been doing too much lately. But we came back. I think in the end of the game, we just made some crucial mistakes, me going under on the screen and giving a three-point shot, missing a rebound… We didn’t execute as best as we could. We almost stole the win from them and we had it. But we just let it slip away.
MACVAN, MILAN
EA7 Emporio Armani Milan
"We knew it would be tough and this win is very important to give us the confidence to keep working hard. I want to apologise to my teammates and staff for my behaviour [with the technical foul] because I almost gave the game away, but it’s a great team victory."
