Ergin Ataman: “It’s our time to take the title”


Anadolu Efes head coach Ergin Ataman was very happy with his team’s qualification to the EuroLeague Championship Game.

Here is what the Turkish coach told reporters in the press conference after Efes’ triumph over Fenerbahce (73-92):

“This is our game that we played all season. Tonight we played a perfect game against the best team in Europe. I’m proud of my players and we need to play one more game like that in the Final.

When we play our game in the offense, we get more motivated in defense. After the second half of the EuroLeague season, we started playing great defense. This is the reason why we’re here in the Final Four and to play in the final. I told my players that if we go to the Final, it’s our time to take this.”
