"It was hard for us to get into the game. They had a good start and we struggled a bit, but as soon as we started playing our game, we were able to raise our defensive level, especially in the second quarter, in which we limited them to 13 points. Pere Tomas gave us another push on defense in the third quarter and we limited them to 8 points in that period to start getting a good lead. We managed to collect a lot of steals, locked up our defensive board and managed to get a lot of fast break situations. We lacked a little bit more mobility on offense, but at the same time, Slava [Kravtsov] made the difference in the paint and that helped us a lot. I am happy with all of my players' efforts, also because our fans deserved this. They have been perfect in helping the team and I have to thank them their effort and what they do for us, not today, but always."
