Ataman: “We must take precautions after analyzing this game…”

Defeated by CSKA Moscow team 100-65 in the 14th-week away match of Turkish Airlines Euroleague, Anadolu Efes head coach Ergin Ataman stated his thoughts post-game:

"It isn’t easy to analyze a match like this one. I can say that we didn’t begin very well, we’ve played a balanced game until the second quarter’s second minute. We’ve lost control in the last two minutes and head into the changing rooms with 13 points difference, and this point difference is a lot against a team like CSKA Moscow. We’ve started the third quarter in a bad shape and thrown the match. It was the first time in three years that I saw that we throw a match like this, but we don't have time to get upset. We will play against AX Armani Exchange Milano in two days, we will analyze this game quickly, and take precautions. Congratulations to CSKA Moscow, they’ve played a very well offensive game, they’ve reached to 100 points in a match that Mike James only scores 11 points.”
