Dusan Ivkovic: “We stopped the opponent on its tracks when it mattered...”

Defeating the Italian side EA Milano 73-71 on the road at the sixth week match of Euroleague Top 16, Anadolu Efes Coach Dusan Ivkovic commented on the post-game press conference:

“This match was really important for both teams. It was very challenging until the very last second. We were a little bit luckier than our opponent to win this game – a game that is very important for us to advance on the playoffs. Strong one-on-one defense was the key in our defense. We stopped the opponent on its tracks when it mattered, but this was not on a level that we desired. We were a little bit too angry under pressure, we couldn't capitalize on some easy shots and won the match only by two points with a low shot percentage. I wish Milano a successful journey in their remaining games...”
