Ataman: “We are 1-0 ahead but the series will be tough…”

Defeating Galatasaray Doğa Sigorta 82-77 in the semifinal match of Tahincioğlu Basketball Super League game, Anadolu Efes head coach Ergin Ataman stated his thoughts at the post-game press conference:

"We started the match well but then we’ve lost the control against Galatasaray Doğa Sigorta’s pressing defense. Almost all of my players made three fouls in the first half. I didn’t quite understand that. I don’t know if we’ve made defense mistakes or the referees called the fouls easily. We’ve rotated the defense well without losing any of our players with five fouls despite those fouls in the second half. We’ve turned the match to our advantage with the contribution of Beaubois and Simon especially. Galatasaray Doğa Sigorta fights very well, we already knew that. We are 1-0 ahead but the series will be tough.”  

Our player Rodrigue Beaubois also shared his thoughts at the press conference: “It was a tough match. Galatasaray showed that they were here to fight but we’ve responded to their toughness and won the match. We are happy because of the victory.”
