"Olympiacos not only deserved the win tonight, but also was the best team in the Group and deserved the first spot, too. They have great quality, some excellent players and an amazing head coach. We were coming off some injuries and faced trouble. We missed Giachetti, Gigli and Smith, tonight. I think we were competitive, though, and deliver some good energy and aggressiveness on court. We felt well to play in front of such a crowd and a good atmosphere. It’s clear that we sometimes made some stupid mistakes, but when you face players such as Teodosic, Papaloukas and Spanoulis there is not much to ask from your own players. A guard with the talent of Halperin comes fourth in the rotation; that proves Olympiacos’ brilliant quality. I think that they deserve to be at this years’ Final Four, too."
