Laso: "We were short of breath, so I'm happy with the victory"

These are the evaluations of Pablo Laso, coach of Real Madrid, after the victory achieved against Herbalife Gran Canaria at the Palacio.


Real Madrid coach Pablo Laso was "very happy" for his team's 81-80 victory against Herbalife Gran Canaria, especially for having achieved it with six games in the last thirteen days.

"I am very happy with the victory, it is our sixth game in thirteen days, with two difficult trips to Tel Aviv and Berlin. Today was a very difficult game, we had casualties, we lacked the feeling of air, we had advantages but they always they came back for energy, "he explained.

"It is not normal for us to miss ten free throws, so I am very happy with the victory and the work of the boys and the effort they have made to get a difficult game," he added.

The white coach assured that he gives "a lot of value" to having 18 victories in 19 Endesa League games, more in a first half of the championship with many postponed games and trips, between the domestic competition and the Euroleague. "Taking that number of victories speaks very well of the team's work and today is a great example, how the team has been able to compete on a difficult day, against a team with very good players," he explained.

He was also satisfied with the work of center Alex Tyus, who was hired earlier this month to cover the loss of Anthony Randolph. "I am happy with his progression and he is a player who can give Edy [Tavares] a lot of rest and today he has had continuations and rebounds. I am happy with his work, knowing that you have to tighten him," he concluded.
