NEWS | 07/11/2019“We played like a team that wants to win”, claimed Llull.
“We had a tough time in the third quarter due to Crvena Zvezda’s flair, but despite that we overcame it. I think our best quarter was the last, but we wore them down in minutes leading up to it. That led us to win the game by fifteen points. If you maintain that difference you might think we dominated but we had to push for it and I am thrilled with the win.”
“When you are winning, it feels like everything is going well and when you lose it feels like everything is going wrong. I do not see things in that way. There is still much room for improvement, I’m looking at players in different situations and I know we need to keep working together. Winning makes everything easier and it makes us look better so I'm thrilled with the win, happy with how we worked and now we must relax before turning to think about Sunday's game.”
Llull: "In the final quarter our accuracy was key"
“This win is down to great work from the whole team. We knew that it would not be easy with this hoe support and if you take your foot off the gas for a second they'll get you. We got through their good moments and played as a unit to win.”
“In the final quarter our accuracy was key. We passed the ball around well, and made good shots. In defense we did well. The team is doing brilliantly and the key thing is we are on the right lines. That is shown in the game. It was vital to get a first Euroleague away win to stop that bad run and now we must try to continue this good run we’re starting”.
Tavares: "I have to continue this form to help the team"
“This win is down to being focused and the energy we put in. That is great for away games. We had real energy from the start to the final buzzer. I feel great. today I made five blocks and I have to continue this form to help the team and help in defense. These are the most important things for me now. The added focus in the final quarter was key.”
