Ataman: ”We couldn't find our own rhythm during the match...”

Head coach Ergin Ataman of Anadolu Efes, who lost 80-102 away game againts AS Monaco Basket in the 29th week of Turkish Airlines Euroleague, explained his views as follows:

"Congratulations to the AS Monaco team, they deserved to win. They started the game strong and aggressive. They were physically superior. They scored 42 points in one-on-one games with Mike James, Dwayne Bacon, and Alpha Diallo alone. They got 21 points from offensive rebounds. At any point in the game, we had to play our game. We couldn't find our rhythm. Shane Larkin was sick for two days. We tried to keep him on the field but he said he had no energy in the first half. We looked again at his situation in the second half but unfortunately, he had no energy today due to his illness. We couldn't catch our own game. Congratulations once again to AS Monaco. We lost the game, also we lost our average advantage with an incredible foul during a three-point shot in the last seven seconds. I don't know right now if it was a three-point foul or if it was a classic Mike James move. I'll watch it again. It was important for us to keep the head-to-head average advantage."
