Laso: “Anadolu Efes are doing well in the Euroleague, it's a tough test”

“It is a different team to last year”, said Reyes.
Pablo Laso and Reyes spoke to the press before game day 11 in the Euroleague, when Real Madrid go to Istanbul to face Anadolu Efes (6:30 pm CET). The coach said: "Since Sunday trained with the whole team and over this week we have not picked up any injuries. It was good for us have a break in terms of work, training and the rest we’re getting, after the barrage of games we have played."
 
"Anadolu Efes are doing well in the Euroleague. They have a strong team, with an enviable exterior playing approach and a lot of scoring capabilities and threat of outside shooting. The good results come from the positive formula they have. For us it is always a difficult test to go and play them away."
 
Losses
"When you lose, you focus on the next game. This time we rested and it has been good for us analysing why we win and lose and also the things we can improve. I hope that we can be better than in the last games and clinch the win. "
 
Llull makes his return
"Llull is doing fine so he will travel and play. I do not plan to protect him in terms of minutes. He will play whatever I see fit, although he has not featured for two or three weeks

Laso: “It did us well to have a break”.

"He did well in training and I have no reason to protect him. Kuzmic will not travel because he needs time, the same goes for Pantzar and Yusta."

Reyes: "We have a team that can beat anyone"
"We came with great enthusiasm after the setbacks we had. We feel really proud. We trained hard this week and that should make for a good match tomorrow. We also have some injured players who are coming back and we are ready."

"You have play it by year. This is a different team than last year and all we want is to win to make up for the two losses last week and return winning ways. We a team that can beat anyone. "

The rivals
"They are a very solid outfit, winning important games. They are level with us. It is a key game. They made many signings and bring in stars every year, and for now they are on doing it right, they are one of the rivals we want to beat."
