Baskonia Vitoria Gasteiz
"We played a very good game, in my opinion. It is true that we were a little soft on defense in the opening five minutes and made mistakes on offense – making turnovers and taking bad shots. We were soft on defense after these situations. After that, in the second part of the game, the team played very well on defense, with good intensity and believing in the things we have to do. In the last 2-3 minutes with a 7-point lead, we were so-so at putting the ball in the right place. We have to improve that because we lost the opportunity to kill the game entering the final minute, and they got the chance to win at the buzzer. I am very happy for this win and for the players, especially. There was a moment in which Toko [Shengelia] was tired, Andrea [Bargnani] had 4 fouls and they were playing with two power forwards, which was a tough moment for us. We need Andrea and Hanga, but in a situation like that the team can lower its head or play defense with even more intensity, which is what my team did tonight. We looked for defense as the best way to win the game."
