Ergin Ataman, Anadolu Efes Istanbul head coach
"Their key player is Kostas Sloukas, of course. He creates a lot off the pick and roll. Thomas Walkup is their defensive player, they have Tyler Dorsey who is dangerous on the penetrations. For sure, Sasha Vezenkov opens the court and Moustapha Fall is strong inside. Kostas Papanikolaou brings his experience, he rebounds, cuts…they have a really good balance. The whole season they played the same system, same rotation. They use many defensive situations, with Fall contesting shots inside. They use switching man-to-man and side defense. It is a very well-coached and organized team. It will be a tough game and for us will be important to improve the game tempo and find baskets in the open court. In the Final Four, it is hard to immediately start with tempo. In the beginning, our defense will be important, but our game is to push the tempo, to run. And as minutes go by, we will try to do that."
