Dusan Ivkovic: ‘’We had excellent control throughout the game...''

Defeating the French side Limoges 89-77 on the road at the first week match of Euroleague first round, Anadolu Efes Coach Dusan Ivkovic commented at the post-game press conference:

“We are fresh into the season, and it was a very good game for us. Having played three matches in the French League, Limoges had the slight edge over us. We have young players along with injuries in the team. We need time, and we need to play more matches. Limoges also had injuries. They are experiencing the same problems as us. My team was the better side on the court today. We deserved the victory. We played an excellent first half. Leading by 10 points in the first 20 minutes, we had a two-point accuracy of 73% and a three-point accuracy of 67% at 8/12. We had excellent control throughout the game against Limoges. Especially at the offensive end, we were splendid. We made 27 assists, translating into 27 easy baskets for us. Our turnover count is 19. Two of our national players, Doğuş Balbay and Cedi Osman couldn’t play today due to their injuries. That is, we played with fewer players in the rotation. I have to repeat that we deserved the victory. I would like to congratulate my lads. I wish the best of success to Limoges in their upcoming matches...”
