Ergin Ataman: “We’ve played our own game and won a crucial victory…”

Defeating AX Armani Exchange Milan 81-76 in the double week’s second road match of Turkish Airlines Euroleague, Anadolu Efes head coach Ergin Ataman stated his thoughts post-game:

“Today, the match was played in the great Final Four atmosphere. It was exciting for us to play against Milano, they are one of the most standing out teams of the season. We’ve used pick&roll within the first quarter well. Beaubois and Pleiss played the offense well, we were good on offensive rebounds, and found 13 points from the shots that composed from the rebounds. I think that we’ve closed the underneath well. They’ve found extra three-pointers with Jeff Brooks and Aaron White, but otherwise, I believe we’ve stopped them well. They’ve scored 4 three-pointers, though our strategy was to close the painted area. We’ve done a good job on defending Sergio Rodriguez. Nedovic scored tough points. We’ve controlled the game with Micic and Larkin within the last 5-minute duration of the match, played our own game, and won a crucial victory.”
