Baskonia Vitoria Gasteiz
"We have started very well and have played with very good intensity during all 40 minutes. For me, it has been the key to beat a very good team like Darussafaka. I am very happy with this kind of intensity and mentality. We have to keep it going for the next games. We kept a constant level of intensity during the first half. I believe that in any game, in any sport, intensity and character don't come by themselves, they need to be built. You have to go through good and bad times for that character to be shown. You cannot expect to have that character at the beginning of the season, it doesn't work that way. The team showed its character in many moments this season, here and there, but what we did today is what we need in order to compete against anyone, even when you don't have a good day on offense. The team had great games before this, winning in Madrid or in Belgrade. This proves that if we don't have an excellent game on offense but play with intensity and aggressiveness, we can compete at this level."
