“We tried to play as good as we can in this moment. I think that we could have played better without so many turnovers and allowed offensive rebounds. This loss will be a lesson for us to try more and fight harder.”
CASIMIRO, LUIS
Herbalife Gran Canaria Las Palmas
“I'm happy with the final result, because we had some problems with injuries before the game. Planinic was out, but others filled the gap. MZT Skopje Aerodrom is a good team, which fights hard until the last second. It's hard to win here, but we played good and had many easy points, so the win is deserved.”
