Dusan Ivkovic: “Dominating rebounds could be the key to the game...”

Preparing to play against the Spanish side Unicaja Malaga on Friday, January 29th on the road at the fifth week match of Turkish Airlines Euroleague Top 16 Group E, Anadolu Efes Coach Dusan Ivkovic commented on the upcoming match:

“Euroleague is a tough arena, and every win counts. We deeply respect Unicaja Malaga. We need to organize well on the court. Fast breaks and rebound domination could be the key to the game. This may give us some advantage. Also, we don’t have any injured players right now. This is good for us, especially compared to the two injuries last week. I believe that my team will play good basketball at Malaga...”

Anadolu Efes’s Birkan Batuk also stated his thoughts: “We are going to play a tough road match against Unicaja Malaga at Turkish Airlines Euroleague. We need to reflect our defensive strength on the court throughout the match, for the whole 40 minutes. We should prevent our opponent from getting easy points and minimize their impact on offensive rebounds. I hope we will go back home with the win...”
