Head Coaches

FISCHER, MATHIAS
Telekom Baskets Bonn
"We had a small chance to win the game tonight and took the right step forwards at the right time. I am very proud of my team, which never gave up and was able to make important shots when we needed them most. We always tell our rotation players to believe in themselves and play with confidence, like they did tonight - especially Enosch Wolf and Florian Koch, who made great shots which gave us a great boost."
ABOS, JOSE LUIS
CAI Zaragoza
"It was a very good, attractive game from an offensive-minded point of view. We know we couldn't depend exclusively on our offensive production because Bonn is a great team, pushed by its fans. We entered the fourth quarter with a high three-point shooting percentage and it was difficult to keep controlling the game depending on long-distance shots only."

Players

McCRAY, DAVID
Telekom Baskets Bonn
"CAI Zaragoza forced us to fight all night long. No matter what we tried on defense, switching and fighting, we couldn't stop them from scoring. Enosch [Wolf] came in and gave us a great boost. I am proud of our second unit, which showed great confidence tonight. Nobody was afraid to take shots, we never gave up and believed in our chances."
JONES, JOSEPH
CAI Zaragoza
"We made a couple of critical mistakes in the final minutes which cost us the win. Telekom Baskets, however, ended the game really strong to get the win. Some of their players stepped up to make decisive shots and we were not able to get answers."
