THE Vasilis Spanoulis at the press conference he congratulated her win to Panathinaikoshowever, later lashed out at the refereeing of the match, saying that it is world record for a team to take 3 shots, in a multi-contact match, instead of the opponent’s 22, even at home.
We remind, immediately after the end of the match refused to make statements in the flash interviewcontent to just congratulate his team Ergin Ataman.
The statements of Vassilis Spanoulis in detail:
“Congratulations to Panathinaikos for the win and many congratulations to the team, because after a bad performance in Rhodes we showed our true selves, while we were ahead in several parts of the game. We were misguided, lost in the details for two fouls, which we didn’t make, an offensive rebound. These are part of the game. I am proud that my team against a team that claims Final 4 and all the titles, we were ahead for the longest time.
I didn’t want to talk about arbitration. It is not related to Panathinaikos. I totally respect him. With all due respect to Panathinaikos, however, it is not possible in a home game, which is played with so much contact, to shoot 3 shots against 22. This has never happened before. It’s a world record. The authorities should blow the whistle on both sides. Whatever the team. It can’t be the 3-22 shooting game, one technical penalty and two by Thompson in the first quarter. This has never happened before. Not that we lost from it. First we will do our self-criticism and see our mistakes. We cannot finish a game at home, having 3 shots. Let the authorities see it and take their measures, so that we can see a better basketball”.
