Ivanovic: "I am enjoying this group of players"

The Kirolbet Baskonia coach praised the defense of his team during the third quarter of the semifinals of the Final Phase of the ACB 2020 against Valencia.

Kirolbet Baskonia coach Dusko Ivanovic was very pleased with his team's work in the second part of the Endesa League semi-final against Valencia Basket and said it was the key to qualifying for the final.

"In the second half we managed to play as we prepared ourselves. Aggressive in defense, on the pass line, closing the rebound well and running. In the first half we left them too many open shots and in the second there were also, but different, because they had to work, "said the coach, who noted that in the third quarter the defense" not perfect, but it has been very good. " "I am enjoying this group of players. From the beginning I saw that they were good guys and that they wanted to do something great," he said.

Regarding Tuesday's final against Barça, Ivanovic said they have "a chance." "We lost the first game against them, we had a hard time playing and we have to play much better than we did to win."
