Laso: “The key thing was the way in which we started the game"

“We have a great team and it's easy to play with these guys", said Yabusele, who was outstanding in the win over Monaco. 
Following Real Madrid's win over Monaco on Euroleague matchday three, Pablo Laso, Yabusele and Causeur assessed the WiZink Center encounter. The coach reflected: “The key thing was the way in which we started the game. We were unable to show consistency throughout, they showed what a good team they are. They were solid, particularly in the second half, and they gradually came into the match. An inspired reaction allowed us to take the win today".

“Our worst quarter was the second. We struggled with fouls and we weren't fluid in our play. That's something we have to improve. But the important thing is how we tried to redirect the game in the last quarter when we lacked a bit of solidity. My main concern now is getting the team ready for Friday's game against Panathinaikos, which will be very physical and I know they'll come here and give it everything to win".
 
Yabusele: “I'm delighted the fans enjoy my basketball"
“They hit some impossible shots as well. They're big players stepped up but we're very pleased we managed to win the game. We have a great team and it's easy to play with these guys. I'm delighted the fans enjoy my basketball and how I play the game".
 
Causeur: “I'll focus on our reaction at the end”
“It was a deceptive lead because nothing was going in for them, and it was for us. We know they're a great team and the scoreboard didn't really reflect the difference in the first quarter. I'll focus on the reaction we produced in the final quarter, when they went ahead but we didn't lose our heads and managed to turn it back around".
