Ataman: “Our defence was in a bad shape…”

Defeated by Real Madrid team 96-100 in the second-week match of the Turkish Airlines Euroleague, Anadolu Efes head coach Ergin Ataman stated his thoughts post-game:

"Our defense was in a bad shape. We allowed 100 points at home, so it isn’t easy to win like that. We allow our rival to score 8 defensive rebounds within the first half and they’ve scored 15 points. We couldn’t respond physically. Our shooters were in a bad shape other than Micic. We tried our best to come back but it wasn’t enough. They’ve used 37 free throws. That means our defense was in a bad shape and we’ve done many fouls. We will watch the match and prepare for the next match.”
