Dusan Ivkovic: “We have to be well-prepared for the play-offs...”

Defeating Darüşşafaka 83-61 at the postponed 27th week match of Turkish Basketball League, Anadolu Efes coach Dusan Ivkovic stated his thoughts at the post-game press conference:

“It was a good game for us, and we performed very well. We have had good games this month. We deserved to win the match today. We were very good at unlocking the game in the first quarter. All our players in the roster got the chance to play. The 22-point lead at the end of the match may seem like much, but Darüşşafaka fought well, and we deserved this lead. We have two matches left in the regular season of the league. We have to prepare as good as we can, and be well-prepared for the play-offs...”

Efes’s young talent Okben Ulubay also stated his thoughts: “We did very well on defense today, which had its impact on offense. We reached the desired outcome easier than we expected. We didn’t think it would be this easy. Darüşşafaka has excellent guards. We stopped them on their tracks through good defense, and managed to win the game.”
