"What happened tonight didn't happen many times in my life as a coach. We played very, very bad and on the other hand, Baskonia played an excellent game. The game was played at their rhythm and they were really aggressive defensively. I tried to prepare my team for that but everything we showed on the court was absolutely different. They played as an excellent team and if my team plays like we did tonight, it is logical that the responsibility is on the coach. It will be very interesting to see my players' reaction because we have an incredible tough schedule. We play a big derby against Galatasaray on Sunday, Tuesday against Maccabi in Tel Aviv and Thursday against Efes at home, and after that another Turkish League game - very, very tough, so we need a quick reaction. My players' mind is in last year, they live in something they did last year. Hope everyone will talk differently because until now everybody was talking about Final Four, for sure, EuroLeague, blah blah blah. I told my players this is absolutely different - there are 16 teams, excellent teams and lots of trips and lots of tough games, also in the Turkish League. For me, it was clear before the start of the season but for some of them it wasn't - but again, it is my responsibility. One more time, congratulations to Baskonia, they played excellent basketball. With a new team and a new coach, it was nice to see the way they played."
