Ataman: ”The important thing was to get a win from here...”

Head coach Ergin Ataman of Anadolu Efes, who defeated Darüşşafaka Lassa with a last-second basket 83-80 in the 18th week of the Türkiye Sigorta Basketball Super League, shared his views as follows:

"We didn't play well throughout the match. This is very natural, our energy is very low. We played two very tough, very important games in the Euroleague during the week. Of course, it is not easy to be physically and mentally ready. Darüşşafaka Lassa played hard at home. We couldn't take control of the game, but we put pressure in the last two minutes, and we got the ball. We caught the opponent on the score with Beaubois's shots. This type of win is an accidental win, but it's basketball. It's not easy to come from 10 points behind in the last two minutes. In the end, the important thing for us was to get a win here. We will play against Real Madrid on Thursday. We will prepare for them”.
