Dusan Ivkovic: “We have to be very careful on defense...”

Preparing to host the French side Limoges on Friday, November 20th at the sixth week match of Euroleague 2015-16 season First Round Group B, Anadolu Efes Coach Dusan Ivkovic commented on the upcoming match:

“This week, we will play a very important match against Limoges. As you know, we started the season by defeating Limoges on the road, and EA Milano at home in the subsequent week. However, we lost the following three matches, two in the overtime. It is apparent how crucial this match is, yet this shouldn’t create any pressure on us. I respect Limoges and their coach Philippe Herve. In order to win on Friday, we have to dominate the game and be very careful on defense. It’s going to be a good match...”

Anadolu Efes’s Alex Tyus also stated his thoughts: “The match against Limoges is really crucial for us. We mustn’t lose at home. Things are much harder for any team on the road. Limoges defeated the Italian side EA Milano last week. They are fighting to qualify from the group and reach the Top 16, just like us. It will be a very difficult match. We have no other intentions than winning this game in order to proceed towards our goals.”
