"Congratulations to our guys. We started very well, but then we got in a mess defensively, made a lot of mistakes and let Zalgiris get in the lead and score a lot of points, more than 40 points in the first 20 minutes. We talked in the locker room and we brought back our defense with more patience. We played more halfcourt, because if you go up and down running with Zalgiris, it’s hard to win on the road because they’re in such good condition. Our guys adjusted to that and we fought; some guys were on 4 fouls, but we stopped their shooters. We received some points from the low post, but we preferred to give them some tough twos rather than open the court for the shooters."
"We know Zalgiris are in good shape, they showed great basketball and they’re tough physically – fast and dynamic, and it was not easy for us. It’s a really big step forward, we’ve got to analyse our mistakes and go ahead. We still have a chance to qualify for the playoffs, now we’ve got five wins and we’re still in the group. It’s not easy because every game is like a new life, so it’s like the playoffs right now.”
