Ataman: “It was important for us to play tough today…”

Defeating Aliağa Petkimspor team 87-80 in the match of ING Basketball Super League, Anadolu Efes head coach Ergin Ataman stated his thoughts post-game:

"It was a great game for us. Aliağa Petkim played a tough game with tempo. We are heading into a crucial double-week in Euroleague. It was important for us to play tough today, this is the reason we played with all of our players. Even though we’ve lost control of the game from time to time but we managed to reach 87 points. With this victory, we secured the regular-season leadership with 4 matches before the end of the league. Congratulations to all of my players. We are heading into a crucial Spain week, we will play against Real Madrid first, then Baskonia. We have to achieve one victory minimum. Our rival is Real Madrid on Tuesday night, we will start our preparations right away.”
