Ataman: “We Are Trying to Engage Simon…”

After defeating Aliağa Petkim Spor 97-83 in the 25th-week match of the ING Basketball Super League, Anadolu Efes head coach Ergin Ataman shared his post-match views as follows:

“In the first half of the match, we couldn't fix the defense, we conceded a lot of points. Of course, we played at a very low tempo due to the fatigue caused by playing two Euroleague matches on weekdays and the demoralization of the Milan match. In the second half, we managed to break the game when our defense recovered a bit. We're trying to get Simon involved in these league games. He played well today. He used the time he played well. Our winner today is Simon. Teams on the relegation line in the league are dangerous teams. In the end, we managed to win. We have a postponement match on Tuesday with Büyükçekmece Basketball, we will play it and return to the Euroleague.”
