Velimir Perasovic: “We displayed a distinctive energy in the second half...”

Defeating the Russian side Unics Kazan 104-99 at the seventh week match of Turkish Airlines Euroleague first round, Anadolu Efes coach Velimir Perasovic commented at the post-game press conference:

“It was a very tough game. Unics Kazan plays very good basketball and they were confident after having won their last two games. In the first half, we weren’t good on defense. We were also a little bit withdrawn in the beginning of the second quarter. We allowed easy points to the opponent in that part. In those moments, we were always a step behind. However, starting from the beginning of the third quarter, we displayed a distinctive energy. We had good ball movement. Although they were still scoring, we made it hard for them to score thanks to our successful defense. We made 34 assists today, and scored most of our points via these 34 assists, which shows that we are doing certain things well...”
