Anadolu Efes head coach Ergin Ataman, who beat Darüşşafaka in the Bitci Turkey Cup Semi-Finals by 96-71, explained his views after the match:
"We played excellent basketball in the first half of the match today, just like we played in the quarter-final match against Pınar Karşıyaka two days ago. We defended very well, we played at a fast pace, always finding the right shots. Many of our players didn’t play in the second half. Larkin didn’t play who scored 16 points in the first half. Micic played for five minutes and we finished the match with our young players. We saved ourselves for the final. On Sunday, the two Euroleague teams will meet in the final of the Bitci Turkish Cup. I hope the one who deserves it will get the trophy."
