The words of Sergio Scariolo

Sergio Scariolo spoke after the Kaunas loss: “Really physical game. Congratulations to Zalgiris for the win, and to the fans for creating a very nice atmosphere, which helped their team. We had a very good first half and some flashes in the second. But we didn’t have the necessary consistency and resilience for the whole 40′. Zalgiris’ offensive rebounds and the free throws we missed made the difference. But in the end we were ahead by 5 with a couple of minutes to go, it became a point-to-point game where they made baskets and we didn’t. We had bad executions, congratulations to them, we rest one day and prepare the next one.”

“The last shot? Ball to Teodosic, we wanted to see if he had a good shot or dump it to Lundberg. Hayes made a very good defense. Virtus’s Euroleague so far? It is no different from other competitions, but it is much more physical. We have players who had never played in the Euroleague, they are learning. We had some injuries, we have to put the whole team together and become a solid team. For now we are for 20-25 minutes, we need to get to 40. And have a solid performance from everyone who comes on the court.”
