Anadolu Efes, who defeated Aliağa Petkim Spor hosted at Sinan Erdem Dome in the 17th week of the Türkiye Sigorta Basketball Super League with a score of 90-64, shared his views after the game as follows:
"We started the match sluggish. We are still physically and mentally tired of the Baskonia game we played on Friday night. Baskonia is a faraway place, but we were able to come in yesterday evening and we were able to train for this match at 20:00 last night. It's not easy to prepare mentally. Erten Gazi entered the game, put pressure on the ball, and increased the tempo, and Furkan Haltalı used his physical strength well under the basket. Clyburn and Larkin did their job very well in that section. We had the opportunity to play with our top players for a while and then rest them. Tonight, we received significant support from our players, especially from the bench. This week is a double match week, a critical week for us. We are in good shape, but we need to win a game, that's a fact."
