Despite his good appearance for the longest period of the match, o PAOK could not make the surprise in OAKA, knowing the defeat by a score 97-85 by Panathinaikos AKTOR for the 10th matchday of the Stoiximan Basket League.
After the end of the match, the coach of the “bi-head of the north”, Fotis Takianos, he focused on the details that determined the progress of the match, stressing among other things that this match was lost due to their own mistakes.
Fotis Takianos’ statements in detail:
“It is a performance that for a long time we were able to limit the attack of Panathinaikos due to our defensive tactics. We had issues like Harrison not being there, the fouls we were loaded with, which makes it difficult for us against teams that have depth on the roster. Also, some dead spaces that Panathinaikos took advantage of. We should have made better decisions in the end. Due to our mistakes, Panathinaikos went to +7.
We build our philosophy. This appearance will help us in the game against Hapoel Jerusalem. What follows is a journey, with absences and injury misfortunes. The first game is played against a high-level team and favorites to win the Champions League. We will make our plan to go 100% ready.”
