The words of Ettore Messina

Ettore Messina spoke after the defeat on the court of Olympiacos: “We fought until the middle of the third quarter, then some players, who have been key in the last month, no longer had the energy. We let them score 2 points in 5 minutes at the start of the second half, but we scored only 5 points, missing three good open shots. Then there were four possessions, in which I believe some whistles that did not go in our direction. This obviously does not change the merits of Olympiacos, an excellent team.”

“Anything can happen, I don’t know how many wins it will take to go to the playoffs, the standings are very short. Last year there was a team like Khimki, which lost so many games, and raised the number of wins of all the other teams. Now I have no idea. Maybe we should think about a different formula for the playoffs, since eight places are few and there are so many entrepreneurs making big investments. In the NBA 16 teams go to the playoffs, plus four to the play-in. I think that is one of the things to be discussed mainly in the near future of the Euroleague.”
