Baskonia Vitoria Gasteiz
"The first part of the game, especially after the first eight minutes, was terrible in different situations, especially on defense. After losing the ball two or three times in a row without finding good options to score, the team reacted in the opposite way we needed. We sometimes look for answers on offense, but you have to play defense in the EuroLeague. For that reason, things were different for us in the second half. We limited them to 27 second-half points and only allowed 11 in the fourth quarter. Our team understood well the things we need to do to win this kind of game. I am very happy because in this game, we showed everyone that we always try to compete, not only when you are making shots and playing well. The most important thing is being able to beat your opponent and compete against it when you are not playing good offense, like we did in the first 20 minutes."
