“We have a lot to learn from this match...”

Defeated by Telekom 91-86 at the 15th week match of Turkish Basketball League, Anadolu Efes coach Dusan Ivkovic stated his thoughts at the post-game press conference:

“It was a difficult game today. We had a sharp drop of performance in the fourth quarter. We didn’t defend well either, and the match went to overtime. I would like to congratulate Telekom. We have a lot to learn from this match. We were unable to prevent the opponent’s three-point shots in the final quarter and in the overtime. This was the first match we lost at home. We have to work on our weaknesses and address them as soon as possible until the match against CSKA Moscow in the Euroleague, because we have very little time left till Thursday. Right now, we will prepare for the match against CSKA Moscow...”

Anadolu Efes’s young talent Cedi Osman also stated his thoughts: “First of all, I would like to congratulate Telekom. They played good basketball. We had a nice start into the game, but we failed to maintain the lead and lost the match in the overtime. We played pretty badly today, but we have no time to be upset. We will play against CSKA Moscow in the Euroleague. We want to prepare as good as we can for this game, and win it...”
