Vassilis Spanoulis emphasized that in the first half against AEK, Peristeri bwin controlled the pace of the match, they just didn’t hit the shots, but in the third period the 0-15 streak they conceded was unacceptable and he focused on Kaselakis’ shot that would have brought the -2 and considers tonight the worst basketball along with that against Ritas Vilnius in Lithuania, calling for improvement and a different philosophy next.
Analytically: “I think in the first half we controlled the pace of the game, we made a lot of good shots that we missed, our defense was good since we only conceded 31 points. So while we said at halftime to come in with more energy and intensity, we really came in with the worst approach.
In such a match you cannot go into the second half and have the opposing team go on a 15-0 run. I think that was a very pivotal point. From then on, we played very selfishly. We didn’t make good choices and, when we got back into the game, we missed a crucial basket with Kaselakis and instead of the difference going to 2, it went to 6.
In that half, along with the Ritas game, we played the worst basketball we’ve played all season. Very stressful basketball, which I don’t like at all and I think that’s the reason we didn’t manage to win today. Congratulations to AEK and we are now called upon to improve several things that are outside of my mentality and philosophy.
I want us to watch the video and analyze the game with the players because, really, I don’t care about winning or losing, but the second half and the way we approached the match is completely outside my philosophy. I hate individual basketball. Let everyone play for themselves. Here in Peristeri we want to play, as we have shown many times, team basketball”.
