The coach of Bitci Baskonia, Neven Spahija, lamented another bad performance by his team at the Fernando Buesa Arena this Saturday, which forces them to go to Valencia on Monday in search of the Endesa League semifinals, without “crying” and with ” clean head”

“We lose again at home, it’s a miracle, I don’t know what to call it. We have tried our things and it didn’t go well. They dominated the game, a team that wants to do something in the ‘playoffs’ needs to play much better defense”, he said in a wheel. of press.

The Basque coach appreciated the good entry of his team but how it was diluted, emphasizing the absence of a more intense defense. “It worries me, in the first quarter when we had a foul and we didn’t know how to stop it, and the first one we did was unsportsmanlike. It’s very difficult to understand, we are a team that makes less fouls than any team,” he said.

“Each game is different, we didn’t want to go back to Valencia but it’s up to us. If a team beats you twice at home and takes away the option of being among the top four, what more motivation do they want”, he added, already thinking about Monday in La fontette.

“We had a game plan. I have to watch the game again, we can’t cry, we have 24 hours to recover and play a new game with a clear head, a new possibility. We are clear that we can win but I am worried about many losses here in home, it’s very difficult to understand. It’s very high-level basketball, it’s the quality of the League,” he concluded.
