GAME REPORT


Latvia-Croatia Postgame Quotes

Latvia

Andris Biedrins: "That's why he’s (Aigars Vitols) our captain. He does everything. He’s ready when he comes off the bench. Everyone played great. The main thing was our defense. I think that’s why we won because we had a really, really great defense."

Kaspars Cipruss: "We'll try to go as far as we can. Next game is Spain, and we'll try and beat them, then Portugal. Hopefully, luck will be with us and help us make the last 12."

Croatia

Marko Popovic: "I hope we can bounce back. It's just one game. This is a tournament and this was just one game."

Croatia

Roko-Leni Ukic: "It's a terrible loss…We have to stay together and try and beat Portugal. We can’t hang our heads. We have to fight."
 
Coach Jasmin Repesa: "I am not worried that we lost, but how we lost - defensively and offensively. It’s important to start and play better. If you play defense how we started to today, one-on-one, we won’t have a chance. One-on-one, they were beating us. Even our two-on-two defense was very bad. Offensively, after the first 20 minutes, we had a bad balance. We shot more three-pointers than two-pointers. We had bad defense, and shot selection and that helped them win the game. But they deserved to win 100%."
