On his thoughts about the semi-final: “It’s a great feeling, being here in my first European appearance. It’s a big moment for me, great to be here. My team-mates won the title last year, so it’s a different atmosphere, we will do our best to win the title again.”

On Zalgiris Kaunas: “They play great basketball at the right time, they are a surprising team, very successful one, but we have to beat them tomorrow.”
