FC Barcelona Lassa
"It was obviously a very difficult game for us. Everybody understands we played under big pressure because we desperately needed this win tonight, for many reasons, we had a lot to overcome. First of all, Faverani was with us with three days and played 26,27 minutes, which is strange, but it happens. Second, even today, after the first half, our doctor told me that Brad Oleson was injured and couldn't play. He has an ankle problem and we will see how serious it is tomorrow. Third, a problem we had all season with rebounds and turnovers. In the first half, we had 11 turnovers and gave up 8 offensive rebounds to a team like Efes, which is very strong on offensive rebounds. We need more consistency, which is obvious we don't have. When we were up by 16, I don't know what happened, but after a few minutes we were up by just 3. Basically, we have to analyze this. We don't have to turn the ball over and need to know how to stop transitions, when to make fouls and all that little, but very important things in basketball. I give credit to all the players in our team. We played together, stuck to our game plan and finally won this very important game against a talented, athletic team like Efes. Thank you to our fans for supporting us in a unique way."
