"The important thing is not the stats. It’s that we played with heart and we played with passion. We had a great crowd here tonight. People support the team and respond to the team. At the end of the day, this year that’s what we are trying to do is build a fan base and be of course a successful, competitive team. Tonight the atmosphere was great and I’m happy we were able to beat a great team. After the first seven or eight minutes of the first quarter, we defensive rebounded better. We made them miss a lot of shots, that’s the reason there’s a lot of offensive rebounds, but it was far too much. Once we got our hands around that I thought we played a great defensive game. We’ve had some good ones defensively. In fairness and in honesty, they were missing two important players, but that’s happened to us all season. We’ve played many games without two of our main players and that’s the kind of seasons it is. You just have to take advantage of it when it comes. "
LASO, PABLO
Real Madrid
"We started the game, more or less, good, contesting their shots and we controlled the beginning of the game. We were able to rebound on offense. But then when we look at the stats we see two things that re impossible to win a game away from home: 15 turnovers and 23% from the three-point line. It was probably one of the worst games that we played this year, but we knew in this EuroLeague that if you are not able to play a good game, probably you are going to lose because the teams are very competitive.

"It’s been a pretty tough month for us; we’ve been struggling trying to find our flow. And what team can you gain confidence from beating [more] than Madrid. So it’s a great win for us. We are going to cherish this moment right now, but we still have a lot of work to do. We played some great defense. We’ve been defending all year, but we’ve gotta find our flow. We’ve been playing great defense, but we give a lot of teams second chances and we’re not doing things on the offensive end. Tonight we put everything together and came out with a great win."
REYES, FELIPE
Real Madrid
"The EuroLeague is a very long, very tough competition, with a lot of games and many trips. We didn't play well tonight, had a very bad game and they took advantage of it. We must forget this loss as soon as possible, because we have tough games and difficult trips ahead of us. We have to leave this behind and work even harder. With such a demanding competition and so many games, sometimes you don't play at the level you should and pay a price for it, especially if you play on the road. We have to forget about this loss and work hard, as we face a tough week. We didn't have a good day, made a lot of turnovers and they got into the game due to our mistakes. Little by little, they took a lead we could not overcome."
