"First of all, congratulations to Panathinaikos for the victory. They played really aggressive and seeing the statistics that they have, 10 steals and 3 turnovers, we have the opposite, 2 steals and 12 turnovers. This was the key of the game. It means that Panathinaikos's players had a bigger desire to play the game than my players. Plus in the first quarter, they took 6 offensive rebounds, so this means that almost every shot they missed, they took the offensive rebound. The best period of our game was the second quarter; we were more aggressive. First of all, James Nunnally, not only because he scored 20 points; he was also very aggressive defensively and his presence changed the game a little bit. The second half was like the first 10 minutes: every time that we came back, we made bad decisions, bad shots. If you shoot 46% from two-point range, it is very difficult to win the game. One more time, congratulations to Panathinaikos for their good game and thanks to the Panathinaikos fans for, one more time, the way they see me over here."
