KIROLBET Baskonia Vitoria Gasteiz
"I think we played a good game, with a great three-point percentage. We had some problems in the second half when Zalgiris pressed fullcourt. We lost our rhythm, made some turnovers and left us without confidence for some moments, but in general, I think it was a good game on offense and defense and for some minutes, we did great on offense. We are happy, but have to think on the next game. The team is now with good confidence. I think that the best about it is that there are different players who can shoot, play pick-and-roll and play in the low post. That is good for our offense, but we need to improve, especially on defense, in one-on-one situations and pick-and-roll. We need to work hard.
"It looked like the game was over but as we expected, Zalgiris kept defending, changed the defense with fullcourt pressure and made automatic switches in pick-and-roll situations. That broke our rhythm and we were in a bad position for some minutes, but in the last quarter, we played smarter and took better decisions to break their press. In the end, we won a very important game for us."
