THE Matias Lessor is one of his distinguished Panathinaikou this season, however, he believes he could play even better.
The French center talked about the upcoming match of the “greens” with the Virtues (17/11, 21:15), emphasizing that the Italians are one of her best teams Euroleague. At the same time, he referred to his own performance, pointing out that he expects more from himself.
In detail what the French center said before the game with the team – surprise of this year’s Euroleague:
On the victory over Zalgiris and what it gives to the psychology of Panathinaikos: “It’s a good win, we have to continue like this. We are in good shape and we have to continue like this, taking it one game at a time.”
On whether Virtus Bologna is more dangerous than the Lithuanians: “I think so, yes. Basically, Virtus is one of the best teams in the Euroleague. They are perhaps the team no one expected to see there, the surprise at the start of this season. He plays very good basketball, he has Sengelia who we will have to limit. We have to do everything to get the victory.”
For what Panathinaikos needs to fix: “I don’t know about Panathinaikos, but I have to correct my mistakes. This is something I have to make myself. Now, speaking more seriously, we must be ourselves. To be aggressive, to use our strength in attack, to play smart, to get the rebounds. Rebounds are very important and we have to make sure we dominate there. This will be the “key”. It sounds simple, but it will be very important to protect our rebounds and racket. That’s what you have to do to win, combined with avoiding stupid mistakes.”
On his image so far in the “clover” and whether he is happy with his performance: “I can do much better. I’m trying to improve myself, to find myself and how to play better with my teammates. It’s a new team, every match is different. Like I said, I can do a lot better than I am now.”
