Panathinaikos Superfoods Athens
"We are happy for this win. I think we did an excellent job tonight. First of all, we showed great mentality and played great defense all game long. On offense, more or less, we controlled what we wanted. We had some problems at the end of the first quarter and after that, some problems in the beginning of the third quarter but in general, I think we played good basketball, good defense. On offense, we played smart against an opponent which we know it is very difficult to play good offense against. It is strange for me to use less than 10 players in one game - I always use 10 players. Sometimes you have some internal problems, some injuries and things that, as you know, after one year here, you know that a Panathinaikos coach does not complain for anything. I always try to find the way to win. Every day, we will try to find players inside the team to help us because if we don't, it will be impossible to play. We played a good game in Vitoria, in general. We had the control of the game but made 3-4 incredible mistakes at the end of the game and this is why we didn't win. We played probably better than Baskonia. We always try to do this way and until now, we played two home games and four on the road - in Barcelona, Piraeus, Moscow and Vitoria. Our schedule until now has been incredible and now, we have to be ready for the next games."
