With the zonal defense 2-3 we managed to slow down his game. "

Comeback. "We have taken a step of maturity with respect to the Valencia match where they trace us to win. The match was complicated with the departure of Bruno Fitipaldo and we also had some player touched, but we have removed mental strength and we have solved it with this word: equipment".

Dragan Apic. "I am especially happy for the game he has made. He has been tremendous and has played with a lot of character and integrity. His game, in the second half, has allowed us to get hooked and achieve the comeback" .

Possible semifinals. "We have played very good basketball in this Final Phase. I am not objective, but I think my players deserve to play in the semifinals.

Party. "We have not made it easy for him. I am annoyed because the boys have made a tournament from less to more. We have had to make a great effort to arrive with options to win, but tiredness has been one of the reasons to suffer is defeat. A game we had controlled has escaped us. "
