Laboral Kutxa Vitoria
"We had a difficult start in this game, but we managed to have a better control of the rhythm at the end of the first quarter, during the second and also in the third, but we committed a few mistakes in the early going during the last period and that opened a little gap between us. We lost our strength and composure a little bit then, we took some shots too early, committed some turnovers we could have avoided, and allowed their shooters open shots, which we had under control until that moment in the game. Panathinaikos is a great team, with a lot of talent and experience. It’s a high-class team that also possesses a lot of physical strength and athleticism in every position. We fought face to face against them, but in the last period they demonstrated that they have something more. They deserved the win.
