KIROLBET Baskonia Vitoria Gasteiz
"We played a very complete game. We did very well defensively with aggressiveness, rebounding well and running the break. I want to point out that the team was able to overcome the adversities we had due to our physical problems, and did very well. We has to replace a very good player, Toko [Shengelia], who is always a big loss. We managed to do it as a team with a lot of players adding good things for us in aspects of the game that are not easy to be seen, like rebounds, defensive pressure and balance. In that sense, we had a very good game. I am not following streaks, to be honest. We don't have to look at what we have done, but look forward, which is always difficult. We have to be happy with today's win, but we return to practice tomorrow and wait for Toko and Marce [Huertas] to recover soon. I believe that we don't have to regret injuries, but see them as opportunities for others, like happened tonight. We cannot look for heroes or look for players to replace those important players who cannot play. You have to look for the team as a whole - play better defense, pass the ball better, be more focused. When you are missing a good player, you miss his points, his rebounds, his low post game or skills, which cannot be replaced by an individual player, but if the team is first and foremost for everyone, what we saw today can happen. We hope Toko can be back soon because the more we are, the better team we are, but it is a good sign to see that the team can overcome these adversities, which are part of the game. By losing a player, we don't stop being competitive, but showing it on the court is a good sign for the team."
