ABOS, JOSE LUIS
"We had a cold start, without the toughness required in this kind of game; we had talked about it as if it was a final for us. We had a cold start, with little intensity on defense, which led us to make mistakes on offense. We had a lot of problems to stop their transition game, especially Gaffney. We recovered in the second quarter and the third one was the key. Shots went in - from players who needed to score three-point shots - and from that moment, we started to break the game, scoring baskets, but without too much control. We played with our hearts more than with our heads. In games like this, with so much pressure, knowing that it was key for both teams, sometimes you don't need to play academic basketball, but show the character my team had today to win the game. In a situation like this, it is important that the team has been able to, little by little, get back in the game, knowing it can turn that situation around like they did today."
