"The defensive work was good and in the second half we improved our shooting percentage" said the coach on the derby win.
Pablo Laso spoke about Real Madrid's win in the derby against Movistar Estudiantes. The coach, who equalled Lolo Sainz as the Madrid coach with the most games in charge with 734, said after the game: "We knew it was going to be a tough and complicated game, and I'm very happy with the win. In the first half, we had a very low shooting percentage, especially from two points, but we improved in the second half".

"Our defensive work was good throughout the game, but we lacked offensive rhythm. In the end, we won three quarters, but in the second half we missed some easy shots that stopped us from getting into a rhythm and in that time they were superior".
