Mathias Lessort, Partizan: 'We needed to get them back'
Partizan Mozzart Bet Belgrade head coach Zeljko Obradovic
"I think we played good basketball, we deserved to win. I also cared about minutes, because on Friday we have an important game against Zalgiris. We continued to play the second half the same way we played in the first. We played good basketball. I don't think we relaxed in the fourth quarter; we had some open looks that did not go in. I think we played good defense even in the fourth quarter. They hit some shots with our hands in the face. I am very happy with our defensive aggressiveness, and offensively we reacted smart, with ball movement. I would love if we would continue like that. [ASVEL] had 3 steals and 17 turnovers; that's -14. We had 11 steals and 7 turnovers. That's a huge difference. That's what we will insist to keep on doing. Of course, it will not always be possible, but our game against Zvezda was similar. Another statistical data, they had 8 offensive rebounds in the first half and just 3 in the second. It sets a defensive tone, does not allow them second and third chances. All the credit to our players."
LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne head coach T.J. Parker
"Congrats to Partizan, congrats to Coach Obradovic. They played really well. They came out really, really aggressive on offense and defense. It was tough for us to match their energy. The atmosphere, I don't I need to explain it. Probably the best in the EuroLeague. When you see the fans are with you, if you are up or down. If you are going down a little bit, they bring the voice up. You can't beat that. Like a sixth man. It is awesome."
Partizan Mozzart Bet Belgrade guard Kevin Punter
"It's a much-needed win. We hit the part of the season when we need to start getting these wins, so it feels good to win at home in front of all our great fans, and we just have to keep going. We had a nice little lead going into the second half, so we had to open the game up in the third quarter so we could rest. It was much needed."
Partizan Mozzart Bet Belgrade center Mathias Lessort
"That's a big win. Everybody stepped up and did their job. It is a type of win that will make everybody happy. We started the game good. The beginning of the second half is a lot of time to kill the game, so we made sure to keep the same intensity, the same rhythm, and we made sure we didn't let them come back in the game. They beat us at their house so we needed to get them back, and that's what we did tonight. Every game is important in the playoff race, but right now we don’t even want to try to think about this. We just want to win games and at the end we will count."
