Here is what the American guard said:

On the key to the win: “We got stops, we played well defensively and that is why we came back from a double-digit deficit. We made some big shots and sealed the deal.”

On whether the team has a big chance to reach the playoffs: “We did what we have to do, we got ourselves a chance in the final week.

We are in the best position compared to two months ago. We still have a chance to make the playoffs and that is all we can ask for now.”

On what has changed over the past two months: “We came together, we played very well defensively. We lost many games in the final seconds, but we came back and still have a chance to make the playoffs. That is the best we could do.”
