Darussafaka Dogus Istanbul
"We played against a great opponent, and we fought very hard and managed to win a game that means a lot to our club, means a lot to our project. It says a lot about our players. But still, it is only one game. This is a very tough league, and very, very challenging schedule for all teams, particularly Turkish teams, because we do this every week in Turkish League, as well. It just goes to show, if you play hard and play together, you like what you are doing, you have a chance to good things. That’s what happened tonight. First quarter we started with a different kind of lineup, and did so because we felt that we had to fight this battle with different type of weapons. If you just play standard, our chances of winning are not great. We had to do something different. That is why we started a different lineup, played different style. It paid off in the beginning of the game, and that lead really helped because it was hard to maintain a 17-18 difference against such a great team."
