Spartak Coach Pokey Chatman:
"Before coming here to Istanbul we knew that this was going to be a hard game. Our oppenent is a strong team and they fought hard today, but this was a very important and dramatic game for us after the loss of Shabtai. I am happy that we won."
Fenerbahce Coach Haydar Kemal Ates:
"My team did not start as well as I thought they would but later on in the game we put our act together and played well. That helped us get back in to the game but we weren't able finish. I am sorry about the loss but happy with my teams effort."
Fenerbahce Player Penny Taylor:
"We really wanted to gain a win today here on our homecourt. We pretty much did all we could do but Tammy's injury effected us in a bad way and ruined our rotation. Now we have to focus in our upcoming games in the Euroleague."
