Barcelona head coach Svetislav Pesic referred to the loss to Panathinaikos on Wednesday (76-70) and tonight’s game against Olimpia Milano.

Here is what the Serbian coach said to EuroLeague’s official website:

On the defeat to the “Greens”: “It’s important that we fought until the end, although we lost. We believed we could change the tempo of the game. We played with fear in the beginning, but we reacted.”

On tonight’s home match against Olimpia Milano (23/11): “They have acquired new players, but haven’t changed their playing style. They are aggressive and very effective in transition.

They enjoy running on the floor and their roster includes some of the best EuroLeague players, like Vladimir Micov and Mike James. The less productive they are, the better for us.”
