Darussafaka Dogus Istanbul
"I want to thank the people that came to the game tonight. Our fans are growing and are showing right now that they are few, but mighty. Our players and our organization are working very hard to build a program that people can enjoy and be proud of and I think we’re making real progress in that area; It’s a big part of what we’re trying to do this year. Every play in a game is important because they all count. You remember the big plays that are made at the end because obviously they may determine the outcome, but I thought we played a really good and solid game against a quality team. And we made a few more plays at the end that gave us the ability to win the game. You make a shot or you miss a shot, that’s what everyone remembers. Bradley [Wanamaker] made the game-winning shot tonight. Great shot, huge shot. The team played well and that’s the important thing. The more important thing is that we made the defensive stop. "
"Such small things made the difference between us being 4-2 and 6-0. A couple of better plays at the end of two games and we could have won both of those games. On the other hand, you could say the same thing the other way around. That’s the way the EuroLeague is this year. I’m very happy that today we were able to get a very big stop at the end of the game… With so little time to prepare, you really have to work on the mental and emotional aspect, to pick the team up from a very, very tough loss to a great team just the other day. Guys just gotta come to play and I thought we did. "
