“The work we did in defense in the first half was very important”, said the Real Madrid coach.
Pablo Laso gave his thoughts on Real Madrid's win over Valencia Basket in the fifth round of the Endesa League. The Real Madrid coach said: "It was a team victory as everyone chipped in, both in defence and attack. The work we did in defense in the first half was very important and then we improved as the game went on".
"Heurtel's introduction gave us a different way of playing. Goss coming in was important defensively because Hermannson was causing us a lot of damage. Alocén also did a fantastic job in the first half. All the other players from the bench have brought something and I come away with the feeling that everyone has done their bit in a game as important as today's".
"Valencia came in to the game without three very important players. These players give them different ways of playing. Peñarroya is doing a great job, particularly with the young players. The Eurocup is going to be tough for them. I'm also very happy to see the crowd here in Valencia".
"We have a demanding schedule now with five games coming in nine days and it is important to assess which players can give the best options. We have to live with this".
