Panathinaikos Superfoods Athens
"I think it is very clear tonight - we didn't play well today and this is why we lost. Sometimes we had control of the game, but couldn't score in a lot of moments that we had advantage under the basket, outside... after that, on defense, we had a lot of problems on offensive rebounds. After that, Valencia scored, I think, 14 points on offensive rebounds and this is why we lost a game that went point by point. I think that tonight, we played probably one of the worst games until now. Congratulations to Valencia and its coach for the win. I don't think we had a bad start of the game or that we didn't prepare the game well; it wasn't like that. Sometimes you simply have a bad night, things don't work or you and you don't play well. You don't hit shots and moreover, we were slow when it came to creating plays. We finished the game with 10 assists and 14-15 turnovers, strange numbers for us, and this is why we lost this game. From Panathinaikos head coach's point of view, I don't want to take credit away from Valencia, which did its job."
