Defeated by the Zenit St. Petersburg team in the 8th-week match of the Turkish Airlines Euroleague, Anadolu Efes head coach Ergin Ataman stated his thoughts post-game:
We lost our game discipline within the second quarter. We allowed offensive rebounds and empty three-pointers in the last seconds. We panicked during the offense and couldn’t control the game. We tried to come back in the final quarter but it wasn’t possible to close the 26-point gap. This was a very bad defeat. We played badly, and they’ve played amazingly. They deserved to win this match. Congratulations Zenit St. Petersburg.
