Ataman: ”We showed a good game on defence and offense…”

Defeating Türk Telekom 87-59 on the 6th week match of Tahincioğlu Basketball Super League game, Anadolu Efes head coach Ergin Ataman stated his thoughts at the post-game press conference:

“Türk Telekom is a team that comes with victory series in Eurocup and Tahincioğlu Basketball Super League as well. We took this match very seriously. We began with a tough defence and found points through fastbreaks. In the second quarter our defence became loose a little and our rival found points from that. Therefore we couldn’t have the score advantage in the first half. As we began the third quarter with a tough defence again, we broke the defence of Türk Telekom. We showed a good game on defence and offence today. We used all of our players and this made me happy. These games hold a great deal of importance as because we came back from an away-game that took our 9-10 hours.  Our players those played with shorter durations, especially in Gran Canaria match contributed well today. We chose the players those are in shape and form better from the foreigner options. We finished the match. We have a critical home match ahead against Panathinaikos Opap on the Friday night. We will begin the preparations of that match after tomorrow.”

Our player Buğrahan Tuncer also stated his thoughts at the press conference as well: “We played a tough away game during the week in Euroleague. We have had a long journey. We came in tired and only had one training. Türk Telekom is one of the important teams of the league. They are good on Eurocup and the league as well. On the other hand we lost twice in the league. It was important to win for us today and everyone contributed. We played well and won. We have a very important match against Panathinaikos Opap in Euroleague this week. We are preparing and become better as we continue to work. We would like to continue as we do and win the matches ahead.”
