Montakit Fuenlabrada
"First of all, congrats to my players because we played a great game. We lead the game from the very beginning. We shot a high percentage, especially thanks to Hakanson, Rupnik, Paunic and Smits. Everyone did a good job in defense against a very good team, and we dominated the rebounds. We enjoyed a lot, the team and the fans."

"Today we started the second [half] of the EuroCup. Actually, we came here with three wins from four games. It was a good situation for us and we tried to improve that, but Fuenlabrada started well in the game. Actually, we like to start tough and control the game with our toughness, but it worked out the opposite way. They started really tough and we gave them such easy points and they took control of the game. I think the difference was their back-up players, especially these two point guards, Hakanson and Rupnik, did a good job and the rest of the team followed them. In the third quarter we played better, we came within 11 points difference, in that time we made 1 turnover and they got a layup. As a team actually I was expecting that we would react better, because we didn’t present our game well, but this is just the first game of the second round. We need to work hard and get ready for our next game. “
