Lima who moved towards one of the three referees after the end of the game explained what he thinks about him: “It’s the first time I have to point to a referee. It is clear what he has done to us. But well, we have the third and fourth place match and we have to win it because for us, it’s a matter of pride to be here. We have to congratulate everyone because we fought and we have done a good job. But, yes, he stole the game”.
Speaking about the tension after the end of the game, Lima presented his view of the incident: “I only went to complain to the referee and, the point guard, I don’t know who he is, I don’t know if he played, he touched me but I didn’t pay attention. Then, I was talking to the referee and the delegate came and started speaking in Spanish, instead of celebrating. They deserved to win, I just wanted to complain to the referee. Two referees have whistled more or less well. There was one who wanted to take over the game. Ibon called a timeout, he came to tell us to come back to the court. The other, nothing. You can watch it”.
Here are Lima’s quotes in Spanish.
