Ataman: “It is important to leave this away game with a victory…”

Defeating by Beşiktaş Sompo Japan 80-68 in the second match of Basketball Super League game, Anadolu Efes head coach Ergin Ataman shared his thoughts at the end of the game:

“Beşiktaş Sompo Japan is a dangerous team; it is important to win in this away game. We’ve played a bad basketball in the first half of the match, we’ve played without energy and weak. But then we’ve started to gain energy slowly. We’ve played good at times, missed unnecessary and undisciplined points, and include Beşiktaş in the game. We could’ve raised the point difference early. We aren’t playing well at the moment, not playing the basketball we want to play, but we’re trying to develop, this was expected at the beginning of the season, anyway. We will develop as soon as possible; of course, we are expecting our players who have injuries to join us within the week. There is a crucial Euroleague match ahead, on Friday we will play Alba Berlin at home. Our target is to prepare for that match.”
