"We had an intensity they couldn't match", Laprovittola said.
Pablo Laso, Laprovittola and Campazzo spoke after Real Madrid's ninth victory in the Endesa League. The coach summed up the match in this way: "We've approached the match very well from the start. Our defensive start was quite good, as well as the first half in general, and we gained an advantage that we were able to maintain in the first half".
"Our worst moment was in the third quarter, also because of their success. But I have the feeling that we were quite in control of their situations. I'm happy with the win and how the team responded over these intense days. Let's hope Llull's injury isn't too bad and we have to do test on him".
Rudy's 500
"He has been one of the great signings for Real Madrid and is a player who makes a difference. I always talk about someone who is above the numbers and the success for what he is able to do on the court. I'm very happy that he has reached that figure because since he arrived, he has been a reference for us".
Laprovittola: "You hopes that a game like this comes off"
"I felt good after two weeks when things didn't go well for me. Feeling comfortable today and having the support of my team-mates and coaching staff are things I need. You hope for a game like that, it came and now you have to look ahead and always try to improve".

Campazzo: “We had to be focused”.

"We had an intensity throughout the game that they couldn't match. We ran the pitch, we played in transition and in the five against five in defence we were firm. They reacted in the third quarter, but we always had the match in our hands. Making ourselves strong at home is very important".
Campazzo: "This gives us a lot of confidence"
"We knew it was a tough game and we had to stay focused. It's been a tough week with a lot of games, but the team was good and serious and achieved the goal of winning three games. This gives us a lot of confidence because what comes next is going to be just as hard. We have to go in to the next few weeks like we have faced this one".
