Simone Pianigiani focused on the positive side, despite the loss: “The players put everything on court. We needed to score some more open shots, but I think we missed them mainly because we were so tired and maybe not in shape. My goal is to keep the same desire and the same mentality. If players keep working and keep believing, we can recover and I think we deserve to recover from our position because of the way we are playing from the beginning.”

I don’t have too many words. I think that we know the rules tonight. It was one basket, one situation. One more time it was not for us. I don’t wanna talk about being lucky or unlucky. I cannot say anything bad to my players. The preparation for this game was a nightmare because of the injuries“, said the Italian coach.

On the other hand, coach Perasovic made a brief statement after the win: “We had another tough game in our house. We have already lost in similar games against Unicaja and Panathinaikos. We struggled with the free throws but we fought and won“.
