Jasikevicius: "The players will take time to adapt to my style"

The Lithuanian coach was very critical despite the victory against Panathinaikos, assuring that his players lack daily work and attitude.

Despite the 97-89 victory against Panathinaikos in extra time, in a match in which Higginis and Davies acted as offensive props, Barça coach Sarunas Jasikevicius was critical of the mentality of his players whom he urged to take everything seriously.

The Lithuanian coach assured that his players still have to improve many things in their game: "I am not satisfied with the mentality. I want to build from training and we lack a little daily work, taking everything seriously. What the titles mark are the small details, which are gold. We have to work a lot with the details, "he stressed at the press conference after the match held at the Palau Blaugrana.

In this sense, the Lithuanian coach warned that "it will take a long time" for his players to adapt to his style since, as he recalled, "they are used to playing differently." Nor did he consider the losses of Mirotic, Claver and Abrines as excuses that could explain the game of his team: "We are Barça and we have to push the games forward. Excuses are not interesting. .

On the victory against Panathinaikos, he pointed out that "it is important" to win and highlighted the role that Higgins assumed in the overtime that decided the match for his team. Now Barça has to focus on the Endesa League. Those of Jasikevicius face two consecutive games in just 48 hours. On Sunday they will pay a visit to TD Systems Baskonia, current champion of the competition, and on Tuesday they will host Monbus Obradoiro at the Palau Blaugrana. Both crashes will arrive before the Clásico next Friday in the Euroleague in Barcelona.
