Returning with an 89-79 away win from Aliağa Petkim Spor in the second week of the Türkiye Sigorta Basketball Super League, Anadolu Efes head coach Ergin Ataman shared his views after the game:
"We tried to play on foot in the first half of the match. We did not engage in any physical struggle, we did not defend one-on-one. Aliağa Petkim’s team also hit 10 three-pointers in the first half. Since we were passed through the defense, they constantly found empty shots in the assists. We talked in the locker room, the second We defended harder at halftime, and we fought more physically. As such, we found fast offensive numbers and managed to break the match. If we walk on the court in the first half of the game anyone can beat us and play as we did in the second half, we are a difficult team to beat in the league."
