"I think that we deserve to go to the Final Four. It was a tough series; both teams fought a lot. They broke our home court. We broke their home-court. This was the final of the finals. In the second half I think we played much better on defense. We got a lead, we were more focused, we scored some important shots from outside and we won the game. As far as the beginning of the season until now, I think that after our performances in the regular season and the playoffs, we deserve to go to the Final Four. We spoke in the locker room [at halftime] and said that we were not aggressive and tough as we wanted to be, as we planned to be and I told them that we need to start the game from defense. So defensively we had a very good first two, three minutes of the second half and they didn’t score, we stole some balls and scored in the open court, got the lead and after that it was easier. "
