KIROLBET Baskonia Vitoria Gasteiz
"We were always behind them. It looked for a moment that they might break the game open, but we were mentally tough. We came back and really put them in trouble, especially in the last quarter. In think we had a good rhythm, especially in the second half. In games like this, small details make the difference. A couple offensive rebounds, a couple shots where we were open and ready to knock them down and take the lead. I believe it was 64-62 or 66-64, we had an open look for a three and maybe if we made it the game would go in a different direction. I am proud of my guys; they really fought and compete. Both teams are pretty new teams, new players. New coaches on both sides. I think we both have a lot of work to do. Today I like how the team fought and played basketball. "
