"In order to finish the group at least in second place, we had to win either this game or the next one. We knew that VEF Riga had no chance to make the second round. Because of that, I understand the coach of our opponent as it is harder to keep players to concentrate for such a game. We didn't bring Chris Lofton to this game and we used a bigger player rotation, so the opponent was taking advantage of that. In the second half we used our best players more and we started playing better, so in the end it was comfortable to finish the game. Before we started the Eurocup, our goal was to finish in first or second place. Therefore, I congratulate my players and I would also like to wish best of luck to VEF Riga in the future."
