Ataman: “Larkin played extraordinary tonight…”

Defeating Barcelona Lassa team 92-70 in the 25th-week match of Turkish Airlines Euroleague game, Anadolu Efes head coach Ergin Ataman shared his thoughts at the post-game press conference:

“Barcelona Lassa is a very good team. They came here winning 9 out of 11 matches. They’ve defeated Real Madrid last week, and won the Spanish Domestic Cup two weeks ago. Though the result of tonight is not a surprise for me. We’ve prepared for this match for the entire week after our Basketball Super League match. We’ve deactivated their most important guards Heurtel and Pangos with a full court press. We’ve found our rhythm in the first half. The key names of the offense are names such as Kuric, Tomic and Seraphin. Tomic scored but we’ve stopped their two base offense strategies. Larkin played extraordinary tonight. He played very smart game. We’ve shared the ball very well and scored, and also managed to find the hot hands. Though, in the end it is only one match. Nothing is guaranteed yet. We must continue playing like this.”
