Darussafaka Dogus Istanbul
"That’s a credit to the EuroLeague, that game. First of all, to Brose, who the meaning of the game was not important; it wasn’t going to change their standing one way or another. And they played like champions; they played their heart out. They respected the game, they respected their fans, they respected the EuroLeague, they respected their competitors, because this game has meaning for other teams as well. And a lot of credit to my guys, to compete like that, to come back from that kind of deficit, to never stop trying, to never stop competing and for us that is an enormous win. We started scoring the ball in the second half. We had, obviously, 70 points in the second, including the overtime. We weren’t shooting the ball well in the first half and they shot it extremely well. Generally averages work themselves out. You are not going to continue to shoot 60, 65 percent if you’re a 50 or 45% shooting team. And the opposite, it you’re a 50% shooting team, you’re not going to continue to shoot 38%. So we just stuck in there; we moved the ball a little bit better in the second half, guys made big plays and goodness gracious, that’s a great win for us. "
