KIROLBET Baskonia Vitoria Gasteiz
"It was a close game. I believe that we played with very good rhythm in the second half for many minutes, but when Madrid switched to zone defense, we stopped playing and took shots that were not bad, but rushed. We didn't hit them and Madrid returned to the game. After that, it could have gone either way and we didn't win. Madrid has players who are tremendously active on defense and able to collect steals, like Facu Campazzo, Rudy Fernandez and Fabien Causeur. It is also true that some of our 21 turnovers – 2 of them inbounding the ball – were not really forced ones. These mistakes are always penalized. We are not a team that commits many turnovers, but had more than average tonight."
