Sergio Scariolo presented in a press conference the Euroleague challenge against Monaco, scheduled for Thursday night at 7:00 pm at the ‘Salle Gaston Medecin’: “Our next opponents are among the top four teams in the competition and are also among the best teams for statistics such as offensive rebounds, efficiency in transition, volume of attempts from two in addition to being one of the most athletic teams in the entire Euroleague. They have great players with a lot of energy on both sides of the court: to limit them therefore, first we will have to control our possessions and make the most of our opportunities. Having excellent spacing, controlling the ball and reducing the number of lost balls will be crucial. We will have to be efficient in and out of the area, in every situation where players will be involved in defensive rebounding, and we will have to take all the shots that will be given to us because with their energy and aggressiveness, they will not give us so many second chances within the same action, and this can be one of the keys to the game, being ready to take shots.”

Mam Jaiteh also spoke ahead of the challenge with the Monegasques: “Tomorrow will be a crucial game for us, we are still in the race for the play-offs and we want to go there and get the best result, but we know it will not be easy. Monaco is definitely a very physical and energetic team that plays very well, especially at home, but we have shown that we can beat any team so we will do everything to get the win.”
