"This is a very big win for us, because every EuroLeague win is very important and also because we beat our great opponent Panathinaikos. It is a win that gives us good momentum and for sure, it is very important that we beat Panathinaikos one more time. The game was a derby from the beginning - I think we played great defense in the first period, keeping Panathinaikos to a low score. Unfortunately, we didn't continue with that concentration in the second period when they scored 26 points. We had a small lead at halftime and talked about the need to be more focused defensively. The third period was very close for both teams, but it is very important that even when we missed some easy layups, we kept them to 13 points in the third quarter. In general, our defense was the key to win the game. With our good defense, we controlled the game and when we found the rhythm on offense, we scored transition points and important three-point shots. This gave us the lead to win the game. Congratulations to all my players - you know I don't talk about injuries, but we had problems these five days to practice with the whole team. Our injured players are much better, thanks our medical staff and physiotherapists. We need to carry on being humble, work hard and improve our game. Finally, I want to thank our fans for the atmosphere we had today. They were great and supported the team whenever we needed a small push."
