Ettore Messina doesn’t want to underestimate Dinamo Sassari

The Scudetto semifinal between Olimpia Milano and Dinamo Sassari will kick off on Saturday, May 27, with the game-1 ball. Taking stock of the situation from the Red Shoes’ point of view is coach Ettore Messina, through the club’s official channels.

“We face a team that has been playing at a high level for months and that confirmed its state of form and confidence by beating Venezia in the first round of the playoffs,” said the former coach. They have quality shooters, with whom they open the court, and great physicality inside the area with Diop and Stephens. We worked well during the week but now we are just thinking about game 1 and giving our best immediately and then trying to grow over the course of the series.”

“We expect a difficult semifinal in which we will have to be patient and good at looking for the best shot on offense, limit the turnovers and immediately play a great defensive game especially in transition to not allow Sassari to play the way they prefer,” Messina concluded.
