Ataman: “We await our rival…”

Defeating Galatasaray Doğa Sigorta 78-72 in the semifinal third match of Tahincioğlu Basketball Super League game and qualifying for the final with the series 3-0, Anadolu Efes head coach Ergin Ataman stated his thoughts at the post-game press conference:

"I’m not too happy with the way we’ve played basketball tonight. I congratulate Galatasaray Doğa Sigorta. They’ve resisted for the final match of a season that turned out to be good for them, the semi-final of the playoff in their court, but we must’ve played better. We’ve made a lot of turnovers and mistakes especially in the last quarter of the match. We’ve rested Simon and Moerman tonight, James Anderson and Brock Motum played in their absence. They’ve shown that they are ready for the final series. IT was a good move for us. We’ve passed the playoff series without losing any matches, we await our rival for the final series now. We will start to prepare depending on the rival.”

Brock Motu, who finished the match with 24 points, 7 rebounds and 1 steal, shared his thoughts at the press conference: “We knew the match was going to be tough tonight. These matches were close and tough. Galatasaray Doğa Sigorta had a very good season this year. We are happy that we’ve finished the series with the result 3-0 and we await our next rival.”
