Ataman: “Important win even though we weren’t great on offense…”

Defeating Bitci Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz team 87-72 in the 15th-week match of the Turkish Airlines Euroleague, Anadolu Efes head coach Ergin Ataman stated his thoughts post-game:

"It was an important win for us, of course, especially after the dramatic match that we’ve lost against Barcelona at home. We are stressed a little and this is normal. We aren’t happy about the ranking we are in the league. I cannot say that we’ve played an amazing offensive game today either, we’ve missed a lot of easy shots. We started to play our own game after Micic participated. Micic only had one turnover and this holds great importance for us as well. Larkin, as well, failed to score critical shots but fought well. We’ve controlled the game in the final quarter and won. Every win is important in Euroleague. We will play against Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv to win.”
