"It's incredible, I still can't believe it", said Carroll of his trey that decided the outcome of the contest.

Pablo Laso expressed his delight at his team's attitude following the win in Game 2 of the final series against Barcelona: "The way the team kept believing until the end was impressive as was the way we kept reading the game. Things looked to be a real uphill struggle and I can't be any more proud of my players. We displayed what's said about Real Madrid's DNA. We're 2-0 up but this isn't over yet and there's a lot of work ahead".

"We failed to find our groove in offense at any stage, although we sunk the baskets at the end. We had the feeling that we weren't unable to dictate the tempo of the game and get it where we wanted it to be. All of the players worked very hard for the team".

Final play
"Amongst the things that I say to my players is that if we have a final shot that Carroll is the one to sink it or mess it. The whole team managed to fight for the rebound, look at the clock, grab the rebound, look for and give it to Carroll. We wanted Carroll to take the shot and that's the strength of this team".

Carroll: "It's incredible, I still can't believe it"
"We had to do a lot of good things to win the game. It's incredible, I still can't believe it. Rudy did great to grab the rebound and Llull then spotted that I was open".

Campazzo: "We've got to keep our feet on the ground because this isn't over yet".

"It was a tough game, it was very fiercely contested and really physical and we've ultimately come out on top. I hope that tonight's proves to be the last game at the WiZink Center, because that means that we'll have won the league in Barcelona".

Campazzo: "We've got to keep calm because this isn't over yet"
"We've got to keep our feet on the ground. It's not over yet. We haven't achieved anything yet. We have to be calm and just enjoy tonight. We turned the game around but there are a lot of things that we didn't do well, so we have to look at that ahead of Game 3".

Carroll's winning basket
"We players are there to do difficult things. We're professionals and have to do it by whatever means possible. Carroll performed very well tonight".
