Dinamo ko, Piero Bucchi: “Paid for the effort with Milan.”
The words of Piero Bucchi after the defeat with Aek Athens
On the fifth day of the basketball Champions League, Dinamo was sharply defeated by the Greeks of Aek Athens, one of the teams accredited to win the BCL. Bucchi’s team could not stop the shock force of the Greeks, who already dominated in the first half that ended ahead 55-35. In the third quarter there’è the flare-up of Tyree, author of 4 threes that brought Sassari back to -12 but è a spurt. Cappelletti with 5/5 3-pointers and Gombauld are Sassari’s best, but the gap è huge, the limited rotations (Diop and Whittaker absent) and the post-Milan fatigue are making themselves felt: Banco raises the white flag, but will be able to play everything in the game against Szczecin on December 20 that is worth the qualification to the play-in.
Coach Piero Bucchi commented on the loss to the Greeks as follows: "Congratulations to Aek who played a great game of quality, physicality and intensity. We to be able to play this kind of games we have to be at our best, it is not meant to be an excuse, it is sorry to lose like that, but after the effort with Milan it was hard to equalize this gap that there'è right now. Let us reset, go back to the gym, recover energy and players and get ready for Brescia".
