“To be in the Euroleague play-offs already is a great reflection on this team", added the Real Madrid boss.
Pablo Laso spoke to Realmadrid TV in the build-up to Unicaja-Real Madrid (Sunday, 6:15pm CET), on Endesa League match day 22. The Whites' coach assessed the game: “We have to be switched on because it's always tough to play at the Martín Carpena. It's been a full-on week but I think the team has rested up and worked well. We'll see how that comes off for us in terms of recovering our level going into the final games”.
“We're expected a tough game in Málaga. They'll be out for revenge against us. They've signed to big players in Bouteille and Simonovic, who are capable of opening the court and are a threat from the outside”.
Fatigue after the Copa
“The Copa was demanding because it's three games inside five days and it has caught up with both teams. They've got guys out, and so have we. We left Málaga very happy to be crowned Copa champions”.
Euroleague play-offs
“It reflects very well on the team to have secured a play-off place and be in the top eight in such a demanding competition. It was one of our aims for this season. The fact we've sealed a place already is great for the team. We'll keep fighting in the upcoming games in order to take home-court advantage”.
