Post-Game Evaluation by Yakup Sekizkök...

Defeated by Panathinaikos Opap team 95-69 in the 6th-week match of the Turkish Airlines Euroleague, as Anadolu Efes head coach Ergin Ataman was suspended, assistant coach Yakup Sekizkök stated his thoughts post-game:

"It always has been hard to play in OAKA. Of course, it wasn’t our play to play with this less energy. We failed to perform our thoughts on the court. Panathinaikos Opap stopped us by playing with a high tempo and good energy. We missed every shot, even the empty ones. They were, on the other hand, succeeded with confidence, scored through fastbreaks, and controlled the game from the beginning. We tried to return in the third quarter but they didn’t allow it. Congratulations to Panathinaikos Opap. We must focus on our next match Zalgiris Kaunas. We want to finish the double week with a victory.”
