Ergin Ataman, head coach of Anadolu Efes, who defeated Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv 109-77 at Sinan Erdem in the 27th week of Turkish Airlines Euroleague, shared his views as follows:
"As I said on TV before and after the match, I want to start my speech at the official press conference by saying, "End the war!" Innocent people, children are dying. This is unacceptable."
"As for the game, it was a game that we played perfectly for us. I learned that we broke the record for 22 successful three-pointers. 149 PIR is also one of our highest. We played perfectly. We were great in defense and offense. We stopped Wilbekin and Nunnaly on defense. We passed the ball well on offense, we shared it well. We got very good baskets. In terms of personal performance, everyone was great. What can I say, the team played with their 100% today. I don't know if it's possible to play better than this. Finally, I want to thank our fans. They filled the hall completely. "They showed once againthat they believed in us and the road that we are into. We have improved our form in the last 40-45 days, we have won the Turkish Cup. We have 9 more matches and we are playing our own game again in the most important part of the season and we have gained our self-confidence."
