"We knew that we had to bring our A-game tonight. And the way we started, it certainly looked like we did, but we had a very big defensive letdown in the second quarter, mostly because Gran Canaria is a good and strong, high-scoring team. At halftime we settled down, talked about a few things, made a few adjustments, technically and mentally. And we played a consistent pretty high-level defense in the third and fourth quarters, and that’s the reason why we won. Gran Canaria is a great team, and they will continue to speak loudly in this group in my opinion. We need to put this game behind us and focus on the Turkish League game and four games we have left in this group, starting with ALBA Berlin next week, one at a time. Kartal Ozmizrak gave us a huge lift. Him, Okben Ulubay and Furkan Aldemir were instrumental for us regaining our rhythm and increasing our lead in the third quarter. Those three guys were terrific."
