Linos Gavriel, KV Imperial coach:
"It was a tough game. Their supporters were passionate. We showed our character in the second half of the game and won. This match is important for us because this victory means we can win all other games, too."
Cantug Keskindemir, Samsun Basketball S.C coach:
"We are sorry to lose this game. We needed to win at home but we failed. Some of my players did not perform according to their real standards. On the other hand some other players are not up to the standard of playing in Europe and they are even not good enough for theTurkish Basketball League."
