Ataman: “We defended well in the final quarter as a team…”

Defeating Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv team 92-78 in the 16th-week match of the Turkish Airlines Euroleague, Anadolu Efes head coach Ergin Ataman stated his thoughts post-game:

"We didn’t start well but it’s perhaps normal in this kind of an atmosphere. Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv started with a great tempo. We changed our game to pick & roll after Larkin joined in. Larkin found a way to pierce their defense, they did everything they can to trap us but we accurately shared the ball every time. I must add that we missed a lot of empty shots in the first half. The second half was almost the same. Larkin played amazingly. We shared the ball until the result is the best. Micic was in a bad shape on our offensive game, Larkin scored but we defended well in the final quarter as a team. It was important to win in this away game.”
