Coach Scariolo’s words after the game at PalaPentassuglia: “A very important win, with great significance, especially in terms of character and ability to respond to the negative moments and a couple of blackouts we had. It’s true that we led for most of the game, but we knew that against a proud team, with offensive potential and well organized like Brindisi, it’s never enough. It was a good defensive game, even with some mistakes concentrated between the second and fourth quarter. We had important answers from players who were on their way to better shape.
Excellent third quarter then we relaxed, against Brindisi no advantage is definitive. We were good at getting it back, we understood that against the zone we couldn’t shoot from three in a hurry but give the ball inside. Good response, victory on a difficult court, great environment and competitive opponent. A good afternoon.”
