Statements through which he stood on three axes, Alec Peters made. Shortly before his departure Olympiakou for Istanbul, the American forward referred to the defeat of Piraeus in the derby against Panathinaikos, the missed shots of his team, but also of himself, as well as the upcoming match (2/11, 19:45) with Fenerbahce for the 6th Euroleague matchday.
What he said in detail
On the 4/16 shots in the derby and whether it has an explanation: “These are things that make you lose sleep. I personally don’t remember missing two shots in a row again. It’s not usual for me, but also for my teammates. In such situations, you either work hard to fix it, or you forget about it and say that what is done is done and we have many battles ahead of us. I think our team approached the issue correctly and I don’t believe this will happen again».
On the thoughts and the problem caused by the defeat by Panathinaikos: “You never feel great after a loss like that. But that belongs to the past. Today is a new day, we have a new challenge ahead of us, a new journey against a strong opponent and that’s where we focus».
On whether there is a match against Fenerbahce due to last year’s playoffs or if it is a game like the others: “It’s a bit of both. I wouldn’t say we are against each other. Fenerbahçe played us hard last year and we expect nothing less now. It will be a tough game, in a great atmosphere and we will have to try to play better than our last game».
On whether he’s worried about the lack of productivity on offense: “There are many reasons why this happened. But we have no excuse. We haven’t found a rhythm yet, we’ve had some good moments and great games, but also some bad moments. This is part of a new season, some guys are back and I think we will slowly start to find a rhythm. We will then be able to show what we can do, because I believe we have shown it and if we start doing it consistently all these questions will disappear».
