"We deserved a spot at the Quarterfinals and I have to congratulate the players, the training staff and the board. Tonight, we had just a simple goal; to finish the Top 16 with a game of good basketball. I think we did that; we might have had some ups and downs in the game, but in general we proved that we are in good condition. We have the desired shape at the moment and I believe we have control of the situation. Now, we will have a break due to the Greek All Star Game and it depends on us if we are going to hold on playing good after that, too. After our home shock-defeat to Fenerbahce in the opening Top 16 game, we learned our lesson, played better as a team and managed to qualify at the top spot. This loss finally helped us a lot. We are now pressing the ball more, we steal it, and both our guards and big guys deliver in that area. Furthermore, more players understood their role and are now part of the mix, such as Gordon and Halperin."
