Ataman: ”I can say that we defended well, especially in the last quarter...”

Anadolu Efes, which hosted Beşiktaş Emlakjet in the 25th week of the Türkiye Sigorta Basketball Super League and left the match with a 104-88 victory, shared his views after the game as follows:

Beşiktaş Emlakjet is a team that has been making a comeback in the last few weeks. In their last matches, they won consecutively. They showed good resistance. We had a particularly difficult time stopping Allerik Freeman. Then when the defense hardened, we came to the conclusion with Beaubois's pick&rool, then using Ante Zizic well inside when they followed him. We played well at times, after all, we scored 104 points when you look at it. I think we played well. Our first-half defense was very bad, we conceded 47 points. We talked about it, I can say that we defended well in the second half, especially in the last quarter. Every game in the league after that is very critical. There are teams that are trying not to be relegated, there are teams that are chasing the playoffs, and there are teams that aim for the top of the rankings like us, which is an important win in this respect.
