Head coach Ergin Ataman of Anadolu Efes, who won the match, which hosted Virtus Segafredo Bologna 86-67 in the 32nd-week match of the Turkish Airlines Euroleague, shared his views after the match:
“We played great defense throughout the game. We shared the ball well in offense, ran well, and attacked well. We missed empty shots in the first half, so we couldn't open the lead. In the second half, we got a big difference when we started to put the shots we found with great ball sharing and great organization. Yes, the important players of Virtus Segafredo Bologna did not come to Istanbul, but I still think they have a very good squad. I am very happy with the game we played tonight. It was an important win for us."
