FC Barcelona Lassa
"First of all, I want to say something about last night's football game. I watched, was in the stadium and it was a great experience. All the best to the team. I was so happy to see such great, amazing football, it was fantastic, a historic game. All the best and good luck to our football team. About this game, it is always important for us, in this period, to win, to get back on the winning track. We were serious for three quarters and somehow managed to win this game by playing good defense, generally. Unics shot the ball quite well from three-point range, around 50%, Pavel Antipov hit four of five. It is difficult to win by 20, 25 and as I always say, my players have a lot of pressure and sometimes we are missing layups that we would usually score in other circumstances. It was a very important win and I give credit to my players. We will think about the next practice and the next game. A win always helps, whenever you win a game, you have a quiet night. If we did not turn the ball over in transition and missed easy layups, we could have gone up by 20 points. It happened to us a lot this year; we are leading by 8 points and those mistakes stop up from extending the lead to 20 and instead, it turns into a close game. It is a confidence issue; we need to throw the pressure out and manage the situation. For 30 minutes, we were very good tonight and approached the game very seriously, especially on defense against Quino Colom, stopping his creation."
