“It was a matter of faith, of believing and keeping solidly in the game”, the coach said after reaching the EuroLeague final.

Pablo Laso expressed his delight after the Clásico victory as his side reached the EuroLeague final. The madridista said: “I’m delighted for my players, I think they did an amazing job. It was a very tough game and the second quarter proved this. We had three bad minutes and they took 10 points quickly”.

“They're a great team, extremely talented in every position, but we managed to stick to the game plan. I think the injury to Williams-Goss was a huge setback, but everyone was able to deliver at all times. That's something you can never doubt at this club. We fought extremely hard to get back into the game. We had a crazy third quarter and the fourth quarter was decisive”.

Never give up
“It was a matter of faith, of believing and keeping solidly in the game. There were different situations in both teams, offensively and defensively. If I had to tell you what I think we should’ve done better, it’d be basic things like some rebounds that got away from us and some losses that we had. Otherwise, the team was magnificent”.

“We’ve got one more game left. I have to thank them for their effort because they deserve it. They gave everything and I'm delighted. All I can think about now is about recovering as quickly as possible and starting to prepare for Saturday's game, which will be a very tough final. Efes are the most talented team in Europe and the reigning champions".
