Dusan Ivkovic: “We lost concentration at critical moments today...”

Defeated by Royal Halı Gaziantep 96-99 at the 26th week match of Spor Toto Basketball League, Anadolu Efes coach Dusan Ivkovic stated his thoughts at the post-game press conference:

“It was a very challenging match. Today, the victory slipped through our hands at least four times. During the regulation, we failed to properly perform our switch-based defense despite the training we had. Similarly, we made mistakes in double teams. There are no easy matches. We lost concentration at critical moments today. I would like to congratulate Gaziantep. They kept on fighting until the final seconds of the match. We have to move on. In order to avoid similar consequences, we have to analyze this match well.”

Anadolu Efes’s young talent Ahmet Düverioğlu also stated his thoughts: “Today, we couldn’t play successful pick’n rolls. We failed to do our absolute best, and we couldn’t reflect our pre-match training onto the court. I would like to congratulate Gaziantep.”
