Pesic: "People think I'm mad at Mirotic, but not"

The coach culé highlighted the performance of his great star against Maccabi: "He is the best player. With the best players you do not have to have problems."

After the victory against the Maccabi of Tel Aviv (96-73), Barça coach Svetislav Pesic praised the performance of Nikola Mirotic (25 points and 14 rebounds) and, on his relationship with the Spanish-Montenegrin, stressed that with the best players you don't have to have problems.

At the press conference after the match held at the Palau Blaugrana, the Serbian coach referred, laughing, to the exchange of words that both had at a time of the game against Fenerbahce last Tuesday. "A Serbian and a Montenegrin speak with that intensity. People think we are angry, but we are not. I am not crazy, he is the best player. With the best players you do not have to have problems, especially when he has captured 24 rebounds in the last two games, "he said.

On the match, Pesic highlighted the defensive reaction of his team in the second half, when he completed a 53-27 run to take the game. "We had problems with our organization and that is why we lost confidence. In the first half we were not at the level we wanted to defend outside. This is the reason we improved." Also, Pesic thanked the support of Palau Blaugrana fans who, in their opinion, understood that "at the beginning of the second part" the team needed "something else."
