THE Panathinaikos AKTOR she did not take advantage of her many absences Effectswas hurt by missed rebounds and a lot of mistakes, and eventually lost 71-68, with Mitoglou missing a game-tying shot!
After the match, Erdem Chan he emphasized the great value of the pink sheet for his team, due to the many absences but also the high quality of the “clover”, while he congratulated his players.
In detail what he said:
“I want to congratulate my players, who showed character. It was a match of character, given all the absences we had, against a team with the biggest budgets in the Euroleague that is claiming the Final Four and the title. We had a lot of absences, but we showed incredible character. I want to congratulate all my players for their mentality, their approach, their toughness. We were focused, we fought, we took control of the rebounds. We had lost previous games because of rebounds.
Also, I feel sad because Yilmaz has a very serious shoulder injury. He is a Turkish athlete, takes responsibility in the Euroleague and shows “metal”. I’m proud of him. We all fought together. Everyone stepped up and helped. At the end of the day we only got one win, but I feel like tonight was more than just a game won.”.
