Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade
"Madrid played excellent tonight against us. We played the worst defense in the first half this season. They scored 63 points in 20 minutes. They had a big advantage and controlled the game in the second half to get the win. Congratulations to Madrid. I told my players [after the first quarter] to try to improve our defense and play. In the first half, in which Real played excellent, our defense was terrible. We hoped to play better in the second half, especially on defense. We wanted to play, but Madrid played excellent and it was a bad game for us tonight. We have a lot of games after this and I must think about them. We have a lot of injury problems in the last 10, 15 days and I have to think about that, too."
