The Pigeon bwin took a very big win for 3rd place in the Stoiximan Basket League, winning 81-75 in Prometheus in Patra.
In his statements after the end of the game, Vassilis Spanoulis said, among other things, that the players showed him heart and winning mentality against a very good team.
In detail, the statements of Vassilis Spanoulis:
“We were very focused. We played incredible defense, especially in the first half, but unfortunately we didn’t capitalize on that, we made 14 mistakes. Most were gratuitous, very cheap mistakes. I think we did ourselves an injustice with such a good defense that we played. In the 2nd half we played much better in attack, however some very good Prometheus players started to score because they have talent. Congratulations to Prometheus for his excellent course in Greece and Europe.
I have a lot of respect for coach Papatheodorou and he knows it, he has an excellent team. But we also played very well, we’ve been playing very well for the last month, we showed heart and a winning mentality in a very difficult venue. Every win helps the team’s morale, but it’s the way you play that matters. You can play well and lose in the details, this is basketball. The point is to follow our plan».
