FC Barcelona Lassa
"It was a very tough night for us. We realized that this EuroLeague is very tough for us. We played with a lot of pressure today. It was obvious from the first half, missing open shots, 5 free throw attempts and a lot of layups. If you see our two-point percentages, lots of those shots were under the basket, missing layups. When we had a chance to finish the game, being up by 8 points, we turned the ball over three times in a row and let them come back into the game. As time goes by, we have no confidence under pressure and give up. It was a very tough night because everybody realized that this EuroLeague is very tough for our team with our circumstances. We need to think a little bit, everybody. One more time, I can say that whatever lineup we have, we need to play together, stick together and play with confidence. We fought really hard until the end, but as I said, the pressure we had cost us this win. We have to keep working together, there is no other way. We have to try to get some wins, try to find some victories, work together and work for Renfroe, Doellman and Oleson to comeback. We have to try every day and from my side, help the players to find confidence again. Right now, they are under a lot of pressure. You overcome this feeling sometimes with a good victory and after that everyone plays better. I am not giving up. I am a fighter. I know that there have been difficult seasons in my job, in my life. I am not this type of coach; I am here to help my players find the confidence they lost."
