Panathinaikos Superfoods Athens
"First of all, congratulations to Real Madrid for its win in a game in which it was the better team, especially in the second half. We did two unacceptable things tonight; our start of the game and our start of the third quarter. This is where we lost all of our chances to win. We managed to return to the game after our bad start. We didn't play well in the opening four, five minutes, but after that, we played quite well. We managed to control the boards, which is always a difficult thing to do here. We had our options to get the lead at halftime, it was a balanced game until now, but we threw all of our work away at the start of the third quarter. We trailed after that, by 9, 10 points. We didn't manage to play good defense and didn't deserve more. We have five games left to play and the most important thing for us is to get back to the playing level we had until January. All teams go through good and bad moments, but we have been in a bad moment since February and have not been able to find our way. We have to go back to our good level and then we will be a dangerous team for anybody."
