Ataman: “Before the Barcelona match, it was better that the second half was tough for us...”

Defeating the Aliağa Petkim Sports team 92-82 in the 10th-week match of the ING Basketball Super League, Anadolu Efes head coach Ergin Ataman stated his thoughts post-game:

"The tempo was low in the first half. It affected our match concentration as well. Aliağa Petkim Sports team played well in the second half. They’ve scored on offense especially and they played with a better tempo. We tried to respond. They scored a lot in the second half but as I’ve said before starting with a low tempo affected our concentration. It was good training for us, perhaps the second half wasn’t that great for us but it was better that it was tough before the Barcelona match for us.”
