Ataman: “They’ve won here and we will go onto the court to win in Barcelona…”

Defeated by Spain’s Barcelona Lassa team 72-74 in the 2nd-playoff match of Turkish Airlines Euroleague game, Anadolu Efes head coach Ergin Ataman shared his thoughts at the post-game conference:

“We failed to find our tempo during the first quarter. They’ve used Tomic and Singleton especially. We’ve failed to raise the tempo and couldn’t play our fast game. We’ve grabbed the control during the third quarter and we were ahead 6-7 points but we were tired afterward. I didn’t want to play with two bigs today, they are playing with Singleton and Smits, therefore we’ve played with Moerman for 40 minutes. Hanga’s three-pointer percentage was 27% during the season and he scored 3 out of 5 and that means 60% and it was a surprise for us. We’ve missed shots at the last minutes. We’ve lost our advantage of hosting. The series is 1-1. They’ve won here and we will go onto the court to win in Barcelona ourselves.”
