Besiktas Milangaz Head Coach Ergin Ataman
"Our strategy in the first quarter was successful, we controlled it, played good defense and moved the ball well to play good offense. When we went up ten points, Artland started to play more aggressively and we lost control. We started to make turnovers and offensively the second quarter was our worst. In the third and fourth quarter we played a little bit better against the aggressive defense of Artland and found open shots for Zoran Erceg. But we missed also some easy shots and made some mistakes at the end of the game, that's why Artland had the chance to tie it. We only made one out of three of the last free-throws, but it was too hard for Artland to score in less than one second."
Artland Dragons Head Coach Stefan Koch
"I think we lost the game in the first half. In the last two possessions, they got three free-throws, we didn't get those free-throws. It is hard to win a game when you get twice as many fouls as the opponent. My team played well, much better than in the last few weeks. But we didn't play well enough to win the game."
Besiktas Milangaz player Marcelus Kemp
"It was a tough game, we missed some open shots. We didn't play good defense. We have to play better in the next game."
Artland Dragons player Anthony King
"It was a hard-fought game, both teams played hard. We made some mistakes in the end. So now we have to go to Istanbul and get a win."
