Velimir Perasovic: “We fought hard, but that wasn’t enough for the win...”

Defeated 80-88 by Fenerbahçe at the eighth week match of Turkish Airlines Euroleague, Anadolu Efes Coach Velimir Perasovic commented at the post-game press conference:
Velimir Perasovic: “We fought hard, but that wasn’t enough for the win...”

“First of all, I would like to congratulate Fenerbahçe. They deserved the victory. We played good basketball in the first 25th minutes of the match. We had the upper hand. In the very moments that we had to capitalize on that, we missed too many shots from the free throw line. It is crucial not to miss those free throws. We were trailing as many as 10 points in the fourth quarter. We were poor on offense as well, which was the breaking point. Even though we fought hard and grabbed offensive rebounds, we didn’t do enough to beat Fenerbahçe on their own home court.”
