"First of all, congratulations to my players for the win. I believe it was a game in which we had a good start, had some bad luck early in the game, with an end-of-quarter triple by Beno Udrih and allowing some easy baskets, but we played a good first quarter in general terms, getting a short lead. The second quarter was our worst one tonight and I think they didn't get a big lead because they were punishing us in things we had talk about loud and clear - for instance, playing defense on Milaknis beyond the three-point line: he had 4 three-point shots in the first half and they lived on that. We understood the game much better in the second half. Our defense was more solid, knowing what we can and can't give, little by little adjusting to every situation. They opened the floor a lot, playing a lot of pick-and-roll, generating situations that we controlled very well. That allowed us to get an important win for us against a team that never stops playing. This is what they did all season, being a team that always stays in the game, doesn't allow you to go on runs and uses the game clock. In that sense, we had to work hard to pull out this win. I am happy because it was a tough EuroLeague week, with two games in less than 48 hours. We have qualified to the playoffs and now will try to rank as high as possible, the fourth spot in our hands, which would give us the home-court advantage."
