Bartzokas: “Walkap hurt his leg, he did half a training session today”


The difficulties of the match with Efes were commented on by George Bartzokasin his statements upon his departure Olympiakou for Istanbul.

The coach of the “red and white” also referred to the burden that Tomas Walkup received in the derby with Panathinaikos, underlining that due to the consecutive games he is obliged to do maintenance.

There are no holidays for us. We have a difficult schedule with consecutive matches. In my opinion, for Efes the match is like a final, in its attempt to claim its entry into the play ins. There is no doubt that he has a very quality roster with talent. In the last two games they have scored an average of 107 points at home. It is obvious that apart from the basics we will have to do many things well to win».

In a question regarding whether the burden will “fall” on the defense, or it will be divided on both sides of the field, he replied: “It also has to do with how you execute in attack. If you open the rhythm too much you should perform after some seconds. Efes executes in the first twelve seconds and we will have to react to it».

As for whether after the victory over Panathinaikos “healed” wounds which until that match had occupied him, he commented: “Absolutely not because Walkup hurt his leg playing in that game. He did half a workout today. Generally because the games are continuous it needs maintenance in some way».
