"Both teams had possibilities to win. CSKA played very well in the first half and dominated; they shot excellently and had incredible stats in the first half, but one thing about my team is that we never give up. We continued to fight and tried to win the game. In the last quarter we had an advantage of 4 points, but we didn’t handle our offense well. We were nervous, made bad decisions and gave opportunities to them to come back. In overtime the first minute was key, and I’m very happy because this is a very important victory. I hope my players will now understand the quality they have and will play more relaxed. EuroLeague this year is different, very tough, more trips and it’s not easy. But it’s good for players because they have more games and less practices, which everybody likes!"
