Ivanovic: "As in 2 + 1, reality surpasses fiction"

"We deserved it. And not only because of the tournament, but also because of the work these guys have done during the quarantine and after," said the Montenegrin.


Congratulations on the title!

Thank you very much. It was a tough game. We learned the lesson of the first match with Barcelona, especially in the second half. We knew how to read the game better, in defense and attack. In the end, against a great team, the last ball decides and we came out heads. We have deserved it. And not just because of the tournament, but also because of the work these guys have done during and after quarantine. They have worked very well. Someone, congratulating me, told me that he had suffered a lot. They are young, they don't understand it. If you give suffering meaning it becomes motivation, pleasure. They will learn it.How does it feel to get a title again in a new stage in Baskonia?

I am very happy for myself, for the players, for the club ... and for the fans. I know they weren't here, but we felt them. Before the final, I commented that it was a shame not to be able to play with the public, because our fans would be here.

How did you see that last move, that of Vildoza's basket?

Polonara has read very well and Vildoza has moved very well. It's that simple. This could not be planned.

Deciding on a title for a match and at the last second, can you ask for more emotion?

Ten years ago we won with a 2 + 1 and I said that reality is sometimes more beautiful than dreams. In Valencia it has been something similar.
