"Nothing is easy in life, but we were a better team tonight. First of all, congratulations to my players. We played a good game, we bounced back. We had two very good practices after coming back from Kuanas. We watched film almost three hours, we analyzed things. We know where we are, what we represent as a team, as individuals and as a franchise… I want to say we were dominant in most of the game, we controlled the game, played good defense. Efes is a very good team, a lot of respect to them, a very good offensive team that we managed to keep to a very low 52 points in first three quarters. We were 13 points up, and we showed we are on track of playing good defenses, with a selection, forcing turnovers and bad shots. For instance, Brandon Paul came in this game scoring 10 three-pointers in the last two games I think. He is a great shooter. Tonight he had the opportunity to shoot only 1 three-pointer. We kept them to 20% for three-pointers, a pure three-point shooting team, so we played good at the perimeter. We controlled the game, especially for three quarters, and then in the fourth quarter we played to the clutch moments because of Efes pressing, because of some other issues. But the outcome is good, a win is a win. That game meant a lot to Efes, but we managed to get back on the winning track, so congratulations to the players. "
