FC Barcelona Lassa
"It was been a tough night for us. First of all, I would like to congratulate Baskonia for a perfect game. We need to play better, need more intensity on defense and offense to win this game. Unfortunately, we went not ready to play this game. Obviously, our chemistry is not good right now, without a second point guard and many backcourt players out, which influences our game. To find something positive, our young players keep fighting until the end for every possession. One more time congratulations to Baskonia. We are in the middle of a difficult season with everything that happened. We need to stay positive and fight every day, take good decisions, fight in every practice, in every game, to get in the right direction. I don't want to repeat myself about how many injuries we have. I would like to be realistic. It is a very big problem, losing so many players during the season, it makes us lose our confidence and sometimes our fighting spirit. Generally, the team is giving up; not every time, but in some moments of the game. Expectations are always huge in this club; it is a difficult, strange year with everything happening. First, we need to find a point guard to help us. Tyrese [Rice] is playing many minutes in the Spanish League and the EuroLeague for two months. We have to stay positive and analyze everything. We are fighters and have to see the next game and the next practice as the next challenge, being positive. I want to thank our fans, our audience at Palau Blaugrana, for being so supportive even in such a tough night like this."
