“It came down to the whole team's character”, claimed Llull.
Pablo Laso and Llull spoke to the press after Real Madrid won away to Iberostar Tenerife. The coach said: “It was a tough, complicated win  given we played a challenging game against Fenerbahçe just 48 hours ago”.

“We knew we were going to be drained, that’s normal, but the team worked so hard. We defended the three-point line really well. We dealt with Shermadini, he played a great game and we knew about him going in, but we had it all more or less under control.”
"Iberostar Tenerife got a few advantages but we stayed calm, we waited for the right moment, we got back into it and the two threes from Llull proved decisive."
Hard schedule
“Now we have the normal schedule back, with nine or ten games each month, and double game days. Next week we host Maccabi at home so we have to recover quickly knowing that everyone will be important for us. You can play better or worse but there are going to be games regardless and I need all my players focussed on the competition as it is so demanding.”
Llull: "We got a win at a tough court"
“It was a successful day and at the end the character of the whole team showed again, especially in the defense. We got a win at a tough court. There is not much time when you play Friday-Sunday or Thursday-Saturday, but we have prepared for the game as well as we could do, this is a place where the fans motivate the team and we managed to get yet another key win”.
