In Game 2 of the EuroLeague Playoffs best-of-five series between Olympiacos and Fenerbahce, the Turkish team had the better of the hosts, forcing Game 3 and Game 4 at home. After the game, Moustapha Fall, who went close to a double-double with 7 points and 9 rebounds, spoke in the mixed zone.

“This is a playoff series, anybody can beat anybody in the EuroLeague. We had one bad quarter, the second quarter which changed the game. We need to be focused for 40 minutes. Offensive rebounds were a big problem for us. Fenerbahce is a good team, they were 1st for a lot of time”, the French 31-year-old said.

“It brings experience to everybody, the group knows what it takes to go to the Final Four. We knew it was not going to be easy, we need to stay together. We can take back the advantage, anything is possible. We can win some games over there, as they did here”, the former ASVEL center added.

This is the second straight year for Moustapha Fall playing in the EuroLeague Playoffs. In the 2022-23 season, he has been averaging 7.2 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 2.0 assists per game, shooting 75.5% from two. He’s first in the whole EuroLeague in that statistical voice.
