Ataman: “We failed to respond their bigs…”

Defeated by FC Bayern Munich team 83-71 in the 14th-week match of the Turkish Airlines Euroleague, Anadolu Efes head coach Ergin Ataman stated his thoughts post-game:

"Congratulations to Bayern Munich.  They fought well. Their bigs especially played well. They’ve scored 46 points with a high percentage. Rubit and Thomas scored 36 points and our bigs failed to respond to that. We hold on with Larkin and Beaubois at the beginning of the final quarter only. Their scoring player Hilliard was absent, and they won an important match without him. For us, the basketball we played tonight was embarrassing.”
