Sakota’s words on the eve of Pallacanestro Reggiana-GeVi Napoli

Dragan Sakota presented the challenge with GeVi Napoli, a match valid for the 21st day of the championship, scheduled for Sunday at 6:30 p.m. at PalaBirgi.

“After the break we started the final rush of this championship, ten games that are all direct clashes for us,” Sakota began. “The first of these, last week in Verona, unfortunately ended with a defeat in a match decided by one possession. Against Napoli we have a new chance, and there is no question that this is a must-win game for us at all costs. After the calendar has confronted us, at the PalaBigi, for a few weeks in a row with high ranking teams, we now have a direct against that must make us take the favor of the prediction. We are all aware of what is at stake, as much us as Napoli will be. We have to do our best because it is the key moment of the season. Our opponents are so talented: they scored more than 60 points in one half against Varese, you don’t do them if you don’t have great offensive skills. Their game is mainly based on transition and one-on-one, we will have to be ready defensively.”
