Ataman: “Our fans amazingly supported us…”

Defeating the AS Monaco Basketball team 98-77 in the 11th-week match of the Turkish Airlines Euroleague, Anadolu Efes head coach Ergin Ataman stated his thoughts post-game:

"It was a good match for us. We began the match with an affective tempo and used Beaubois well on the offensive game. We held control of the game. I can say that we were well on the defense throughout the match. Our team was well on rebounds, pressured the ball well. We only struggled to zone defense in the final quarter. We found empty shots but missed a lot so that caused us to stress out. Larkin’s three-pointer managed to solve that problem too. This victory holds great importance for us because we started to play the basketball that we are used to for the last three years. Our fans participate as well, they are in the game, they supported us amazingly. This team played like a champion and will continue to fight like a champion.”
