Dimitris Itoudis, CSKA head coach:
Obviously, congratulations to Real. They wanted it more. We’ve seen and the fans had the opportunity to see a good fight, a good basketball fight, on the court. With different pictures in all four quarters. Definitely it was a clutch moment with 3 minutes 46 seconds left, at 85-83. We did not defend well, we lost our concentration, had three consecutive turnovers and they made big plays. I think overall the final difference is not exactly the picture of the game. But the numbers are not good for us and also the picture saying that we are minus-13 in turnovers and giving 16 offensive to them under our basket shows that they had a big desire to win that game. We fought, we came back, we tied the game. We’ve seen a lot of buzzers tonight. You know, sometimes the luck is also to the side of the ones that want it more and are more decisive. As I said, we gave a fight, but unfortunately the outcome was not for us. But it’s another game in this slide. We’re going to keep working, learning and try to bounce back. Obviously, these three losses consecutively for us is the moment that we need to stay all together, and we will. It’s probably easier when you start 6-0, lead the league and everyone is clapping your back saying you’re the best, you’re the best. Now, we count friends and people who are going to believe, strong believers in what we’re doing, and we’re going to come back. Once again, congratulations to Madrid and their fans.
