Ataman: “We need to win one more match…”

Defeating Fenerbahçe Beko 86-76 and setting the series to 3-2 in the fifth 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 played a high-level basketball tonight. We’ve managed to reflect our Euroleague performance to the league finale. We’ve started the match very well and with the tempo. Though when Vasilije Micic and Krunoslav Simon had foul problems there was hesitancy. Fenerbahçe Beko managed to come back in that part. The first half was head-to-head. Or defense was very good in the second half of the match, shared the ball well and found the correct shots. It was a solid win. Both teams’ strength is apparent, Europe’s best teams are fighting for the trophy. We are only 3-2 ahead, we need to win one more match. We will try to play with the same tempo in Ülker Arena on Wednesday.”

Our player Shane Larkin also shared his thoughts at the press conference: “It was a very tough match, both teams fought. We knew that we were coming for a fight tonight. We made a difference with our defense in the third quarter, and evaluated the shots we found from it well and scored.”
