“KK Crvena Zvezda are competing very well”, said the coach.
Pablo Laso assessed the upcoming clash between Real Madrid and KK Crvena Zvezda on Euroleague matchday 19 (Monday, 7:00pm CET): “We have to think of ourselves first, the trip following Friday's game, then there's the recovery and we have to refocus on the things we dicussed about KK Crvena Zvezda last week. They had another game  in between against Valencia Basket and we have to watch what they brought in there. We have to try and get the team back into the game we prepared for against KK Crvena Zvezda and go into the clash as well prepared as possible”.

“KK Crvena Zvezda are a team who have changed their coach in the last couple of weeks and as well as the arrival of Colom and having Lloyd out - they're completely different players. They're competing very well and watching the Valencia Basket game, you see they performed well for large parts".

“They have some versatile centers. Kuzmic tends to start, we had him here and he's dominant on the inside. From there, they have important players who can open the court like Bryant or they can even play with four shorter guys like Davidovac. They have real quality on the outside and with a false four. They can play as a block and then with Colom and Walden. Add to that the progress of the homegrown players like Lazic or Dobric”.
