Real Madrid coach Chus Mateo analysed the team's win over EA7 Emporio Armani Milan for game 29 of the Euroleague: "It's an important victory in a game that was evenly matched until the last minute. They had won six in a row and they are playing better and better."
"We played a solid game, good in attack and once we defended and dominated the rebounding we played better. We have to keep thinking about continuing to work and not go crazy because we have almost achieved our objective."
"He played very well, we know his offensive qualities well. Surely without his personal work and effort the win wouldn't have been possible. Nor would it have been possible without the work and effort of his team-mates."
Blow to Rudy
"The schedule is complicated for everyone. We arrived at four o'clock on Wednesday morning from Istanbul and our bodies are feeling the strain. Rudy suffered an elbow to the face but I hope he will be ready to play against Baskonia on Sunday because he is important for us."
