Kendrick Nunn spoke to Amerikanos24 TV, emphasizing:

For the win and 2nd place: “We’re happy with where we are and we’re playing good basketball right now. I mean we’re not satisfied though. The work is not over. We’re going into the playoffs with the same mindset. My teammates will be ready. We know it won’t be easy, but we will be ready.”

For the wild celebration on the step-back three-pointer: “I tried to energize my team and take the momentum with us and get people into the game.”

For the following match against Olympiakos in the league: “It’s a very important game for us. First place in the Greek league is judged and it is very important for us to win it. We’ve certainly taken past defeats personally. Both the team and me personally. So we will be more motivated and give it our all. I’m sure the team will be ready.”

On his chemistry with Kostas Sloukas: “There’s a sweet balance when you play with him. When I’m off target or make mistakes, he steps in and gets the momentum back for our team. So it’s really nice to play with Sluka.”
