Khimki power forward, Anthony Gill, discussed with TalkBasket.net about the game against Olympiacos (71-57) and the team’s injuries.
Here is what the American player said:
On what went wrong against the “Reds”: “A little bit everything, defence especially, we had to play better defensively and not let them do what they wanted to do. We had to stick to our game plan
Offensively, we didn’t move the ball, we had a lot of selfish basketball and missed many shots.”
On whether his return and Alexey Shved’s one can help the squad maintain a playoff push: “I hope so. Our goal is to make it to the playoffs, we have to continue to push for the playoffs, no matter what, no matter how many wins and losses we have.
Alexey is definitely a big part of our team. He will help us a lot.”
On whether Khimki can create a winning streak in the following games: “We are capable of a lot. Coach has a great strategy that we have to follow, it is up to us to stick to the game plan and win the following games.”
