Baskonia point guard Marcelinho Huertas spoke with TalkBasket.net, after the loss to Olympiacos in overtime on Tuesday night (91-87).
Here is what the Brazilian player said:
On what went wrong in the game: “They played a lot different than we did, we took them to the free-throw line many times, while they grabbed many offensive rebounds (14).
Most importantly, we didn’t know how to move the ball against their switch defence they played in the final quarter.”
On whether this defeat can affect the team ahead of tonight’s game against Gran Canaria (11/1): “It shouldn’t. We should not carry over this defeat, it is a long competition, we should focus on the next game. We are still in a good situation.”
