Coach Scariolo’s statements on the eve of the Playoff semifinals: “The team’s physical and mental condition will have to be sufficient to face a commitment like this. Every moment of the season is different, there is no doubt that Tortona is a team that has a three-point shot that few teams have, they use it well and are well structured. The important thing will be to limit the situations where we as a team can do more. On the one hand after Pesaro we needed to recover some players, on the other hand at the competitive level the longer the rest the more you cool down. However, these are things we don’t have to be so philosophical about: motivation we have, it’s a semifinal that could lead us to play another final. The opponent is strong and they have made clear the competitive level with which they want to approach the series. Both we and Tortona have improved defensively over the course of the season: for our part certainly the absence of Teodosic and Shengelia on offense has taken something away from us, also because when you give so much on defense physiologically the offense can drop. There are moments in the game when playing at home in front of our fans can help: there have been so many junctures this season when this has happened and the fact that we maintain the home unbeaten streak proves it.”
