EA7 Emporio Armani Milan
"First of all, congratulations for Olympiacos, who played really well. Since we play the day after tomorrow, there's no time to complain or cry now, but I have to say we played a very, very bad game. Honestly if you play against Olympiacos, which is a team with the most continuity in the EuroLeague with just two new players, the rest of the players are here a few years... In preparation for the game, we had three main goals: first, respond physically, because they play very physical, not just defensively but offensively, because every screen is on the limit; but we watched more the decisions of the refs than what was going on on the court. If you don't respond phsycial, you are in trouble 100% when you play Olympiacos. Second, we wanted to control the rhythm of the game because they have a long bench and they run very well. You have to be disciplined on offense. As long as we were disciplined, we played well. And the third thing was control the rebounds, because we did it in other games, but not against Olympiacos. They killed us on rebounds. And these three main goals decided the winner of the game."
