Marc Gasol: "There are things to improve, there is no more reading"

"Rest? The situation is the same for everyone, in the situation we are in. You have to be on top, improve physically and mentally."


Marc Gasol was the first player to speak in the mixed zone. The Sant Boi center was quick to find the explanation for the defeat against Slovenia: "The small details. We have controlled the defenses, the rhythm and the rebound at times, but they have hurt us. We have tried alternative defenses but that takes players out of position. They have done a good job and the correct readings, and also easy points in some rebound and transition actions that we have not been able to stop. That has discouraged us a bit. We have to learn and improve, work together and help each other. "About the little rest they will have with a view to the quarterfinal game, he said: "It is the same for everyone, in the situation we are in. To be on top, improve physically and mentally. We will prepare well for the fourth game. The plan goes through win every game, but circumstances do not always turn out like this. There are things to improve and that's it, there is no more reading ".

Abalde: "The rebound has been a negative key for us"

Alberto Abalde also spoke after the game: "I think we have executed the last play well. I have seen it clearly and it is well shot in my opinion. He was comfortable. He did not enter and They have been correct in the rest of their decisions. It was important to pass first, but we have not succeeded. This match will help us correct mistakes and better focus the quarter-final match. We knew it was going to be a very long match and They have known how to come back. They have decided on small things and, obviously, if we want to go to the semifinals we need to improve the last quarter we have done. The defensive rebound has been one of the negative keys for us and, afterwards. We knew from the beginning that We were not going to have as much rest as in the first phase. We have a team of physios ready.
