Perasovic: “We fought well but our outside shots’ percentage was low…”

Defeated by Beşiktaş Sompo Japan team 67-64 in the 9th-week match of Tahincioğlu Basketbol Super League game, Anadolu Efes head coach Velimir Perasovic stated his thoughts at the post-game press conference:
Perasovic: “We fought well but our outside shots’ percentage was low…”

“First of all, I congratulate Beşiktaş Sompo Japan. I think that we played a tough defense and played a good game. Percentage of our shoots, especially three-pointer percentage was low. This was the point that forced us. I think that the critical point of the match was the end of the third quarter and the beginning of the fourth quarter. The technical foul that was called has changed the match in this part. Our rival used this to their advantage. We didn’t know how to respond and continued to play badly.”

Our player Zoran Dragic also stated his thoughts at the press conference: “It was a tough game. It is not easy to play at the away game against Beşiktaş Sompo Japan. I believe we fought well on the defense. The score difference was raised to 10 points in the third quarter. We continued to fight. Though we found the last shot but couldn’t evaluate it.”
