Congratulations to our team. It was a tough win. We focused the entire 40 minutes, we controlled the rhythm of the game. We controlled their shooters and controlled rebounds. It was a good win but we have to improve our game and move it forward. It was a tough game. We expected very high intensity, a lot of physical contact. They lead the EuroCup in rebounding, they averaged 16 offensive rebounds and they have good shooters. We were focused on that today and to stop their fast break. Also to control the rebounds; sometimes we did that, sometimes we did not. We need to improve that stuff. On offense, we played with patience. We played patiently and found our rhythm, found the right timing and the right spacing that gave us an advantage. All the guys put their hearts on the court and everyone from the bench brought defensive energy. We were able to keep them to 61 points and this is a good job. We'll analyze our mistakes and as a team, we want to be better and better each game.
