Ahmet Çakı: “We never gave up on the fight as a team...”

Defeating Royal Halı Gaziantep on the road 73-64 at the second match of Spor Toto Basketball League playoff quarter finals to reach the semi finals, Anadolu Efes coach Ahmet Çakı stated his thoughts after the game:

“First of all, I would like to indicate the importance of winning both of our matches in the quarter finals even though we lost both of our matches against them in the regular season. We hit 1 of 12 three pointers, yet we managed to win by shutting down our opponent’s offense and allowing 64 points. This demonstrates that as a team, we fight as good as we can, and never retreat. There were three flagrant fouls that had to be called early in the match. Since these weren’t called, Royal Halı Gaziantep managed to take control. However, we never gave up on the fight as a team, and reclaimed control to obtain the victory. Right now, we will prepare as good as we can for the semi final round...”
