"First I want to congratulate Olympiacos on a really good game. Three quarters we had control on the game but in the fourth one we lost it. We know that Olympiacos is a very experienced team with good and experienced players. They never stop playing in the middle of the game what they showed tonight. They played till the end and did it very well".

"The game was very hard. We knew what the team Olympiacos is. First two quarters we started very well as we were patient and focused. When they started to use pressure we lost the focus in the third quarter. It was tough to get back to the game. I would like to congratulate Olympiacos on this win".
