Ataman: “We are only 2-1 ahead…”

Defeating Fenerbahçe Beko 74-57 in the third finale match of Tahincioğlu Basketball Super League game, Anadolu Efes head coach Ergin Ataman stated his thoughts at the post-game press conference:

"We’ve shown a good character from the beginning of the match. First of all, we’ve defended perfectly. We’ve pushed Fenerbahçe Beko to tough outside shots. We didn’t allow underneath shots to turn into points and didn’t allow them to drive inside. We’ve tried to find empty shots via speeding up with our three shorts, Larkin, Beaubois, and Micic in the offense. All of our players played good tonight. Of course, the series is long, both teams know each other well. Both teams won against each other in the away games and it might happen again, we are only 2-1 ahead. But our philosophy for tonight was exactly an away game philosophy. We played very well. I congratulate my players.”

Our player Rodrigue Beaubois also shared his thoughts at the press conference: "It was a tough match, it is always tough to play in this arena but we’ve taken the game seriously. We’ve preserved our seriousness and therefore won the match.”
