Defeating KK Crvena Zvezda team 84-72 in the 22nd-week match of Turkish Airlines Euroleague, Anadolu Efes head coach Ergin Ataman stated his thoughts post-game:
"We started aggressively. We spoke about the Zenit St. Petersburg match all week, we started badly in that match. It was completely different today. We started very well in defense, played with Simon very well on the offensive game, who returned from a 3-week injury. He only played after one training in the Zenit St. Petersburg match, today he participated in both scoring and assists. We’ve found easy shots with Moerman and Beaubois. Our confidence was restored after starting the match very well. We played very well throughout 35 minutes. We’ve received contributions from the bench as well. Larkin started from the bench today, but he was the most scoring player. Everyone participated. In the last five minutes, we may have dropped a little from the game, but it was a very good win for us."
