Ataman: “This Is A Semi-Final And We Found A Way To Win...”

After a breathtaking match in the Turkish Airlines Euroleague Final Four Semi-Finals, Ergin Ataman, who beat CSKA Moscow 89-86 and reached the final, explained his post-match views:

"We started amazingly. Micic’s fantastic organization helped Beaubois and Simon’s baskets. CSKA Moscow changed their strategy and they’ve used Clyburn and Backett for one-on-one. We struggled to stop Clyburn, he managed to score every time. We were tired and had many turnovers. Our bench made mistakes in this quarter and we were stressed. No matter what, this is a semi-final and we found a way to win.”
