"We dominated three quarters but in the third they were very successful and it was our worst moment. We were able to turn it around and get the win, fighting until the end. Everyone played an important part such a competitive match. We started the third quarter very cold and we have to give credit to Baskonia. From then on, they had a lot of success on the three-pointers, with a very high percentage. That start has allowed them to get in to the game".
"Taking away the third quarter we were very consistent in attacking and defensive play, and we were finding players with attacking flair. For us it was probably one of the best games of the last two or three weeks. Garuba is a player who always gives a feeling of solidity and a lot of energy on the pitch".
The last play
"We talked about it in the time out and I had the feeling that for their defense were going to be very close to Llull, Rudy and Campazzo. Deck is a player who has that composure that he has shown and read a pick & roll situation".
"He read the defense perfectly of the big one, he stopped and he shot. The shot was comfortable for him but he had to finish it, obviously. We thought he could score or have created something for others. We played the last play very well and I'm happy about that".
Deck: "I'm settling in in the best way.
"I'm happy for the victory and for the way the match was played. In the last basket I had a bit of luck. It was drawn for me and I took advantage of it. We are happy with the work that the team has done on a very difficult court. I'm settling in in the best way and I thank my teammates and the coaching staff, who give me lots of confidence".
Llull: "I had to take responsibility in the last quarter".
"Deck scored a great basket that allows us to win on a difficult court and remain undefeated. It's an advantage to have a large squad with such a demanding year. Every player had to do their bit and we're doing well. This victory strengthens and the team has played a very solid match. It was my turn to take responsibility in the last quarter and I was ready".
