Hapoel Bank Yahav Jerusalem
"I think something that is obvious is that it was one more time an unbelievable basketball game. Congratulations to Valencia, they are an amazing basketball team that few teams in Europe can resist. How we started the game tonight was perfect on defense, we decided the rhythm on offense. And Valencia was so strong and stayed within its system. For our fans, this was something special. I am so happy for them. I really think that Valencia is for sure a EuroLeague playoff team. And we see that in their league how they compete with the EuroLeague teams in Spain. I am so proud of my players. I think we did something unbelievable in the first quarter. Then we tried to resist, because we could not continue playing at this kind of rhythm. There is the moment you have to recover. But everybody that stays on the court resisted, gave us something and in the third quarter we missed some unbelievable layups, it was unlucky, minimum three baskets. This is something that when we make this kind of effort can kill a team like us. And the way we came back in the last quarter, after the rotation with the players a little bit more fresh, is something special. "
