Coach Scariolo’s statements on the eve of the French game: “We will face this difficult and important game with some very heavy absences as unfortunately has been the norm so far this season, but with the right spirit, motivation and with the desire to continue to compete against a team that we respect very much in particular because at home they show a very competitive version of themselves. They have reinforced the team very well with the addition of Dee Bost, a very good player. We still have vivid memories of the first leg game in Bologna, where they never gave up even when they were down in the score and came back ahead.”

 

Daniel Hackett’s words in the pre-game: “We face a high-level team that beat us at home in the first game. We want to go to their home game in a decisive way, doing everything to bring home the result, especially because this is one of those games that is crucial for our path to the playoffs. We have a good challenge ahead of us, Asvel at home plays well and is a difficult team to beat inside their home walls. The goal must be to stay focused for the entire 40′ and play with the knife between our teeth.”
