FC Bayern Munich
"It was very tough in the first half when they were hitting all the shots, and over our hands. We didn't let ourselves put less effort on the floor. I believe that one of the keys was we put our small lineup on the floor and we picked up our aggressiveness. With Anton and Hobbs we had a couple of steals and a couple of good runs and fastbreaks. And we kept on pounding and trying to go inside. The word I used at halftime was 'clear', just clear your head, maybe stop thinking. While trying to prepare this game, a very important game for us, maybe the the most important of the season or the group, maybe we gave too much information for the players. Once you do that, you slow down the instinct they need for this kind of game. The other word was 'fanatic'. Everything was supposed to be fanatic: discipline, energy, effort, concentration. And we brought all that up in the second half. I am very pleased for the victory and the margin."
