The words of Ettore Messina

Ettore Messina harshly attacked his team after the clear loss on the Efes court: “They slapped us in the face in the first five minutes and we played a pathetic test, without showing fire and competitiveness. That is the sad part of this night. We put ourselves in a position to try to believe in the playoffs, with eight wins in the last nine games, I think we had to respect ourselves and give a better performance today.”

“Efes overwhelmed us, with their talent, energy and physicality. Interesting how this group of players, when difficulties come, put everything behind them and play without selfishness in offense and tough in defense, as happened tonight. Congratulations to them, they will be a tough customer for everyone.”
