"It was a very important game for us for two reasons. First of all Laboral Kutxa is a very good team, especially when they play at their home court, where they are very aggressive. Second because this group is a very tough one and winning on the road makes this achievement a very important one. They play with a lot of energy at home, they are tough here; we saw it against Real Madrid last weekend, or against Barcelona previously. We know each other very well as we shared the same group in the first round, but compared to the previous game we played here, I think we stayed more concentrated, and played better in the crucial moments of the game. We started the game very concentrated, allowed only 35 points in the first half thanks to our good defense, which gave us the control of the game. We were ahead in the third period, but we knew that they would try to react. In the fourth quarter we started strong and kept a good margin that allowed us win the game. I think that, considering how the game went, we deserved this win. I congratulated my players in the locker room because they followed the plan we had, but at the same time I told them that the way is long, so we must stay humble, work hard and improve what we still need to improve."
