"Usually good teams, made of good people, after a terrible and embarrassing loss are able to regroup and bounce back. This is what my team did tonight. It was an embarrassing loss against a great Madrid team, and we never showed up for that game. But we owed respect to ourselves for hard work we are doing every day. Tonight we played an amazing first half. I believe close to perfection offensively and defensively. It was expected to struggle a little bit in the second half. But the team never lost the handle and the poise of the game, even when Olympiacos came within less than 10 points. A great game, a great night, a great Christmas gift for everybody against one of the best teams in Europe at this moment. They held the longest win streak besides CSKA in EuroLeague until tonight. It was a great night for all."
