Quotes Ural Ekaterinburg vs. Gaz Metan Medias

02.10.2012

Gaz Metan Medias head coach Marcel Dan Tenter
"Congratulations to the hosts, they have shown us really great basketball, and the atmosphere was amazing. We corrected the mistakes we made in the first game, especially the low shooting percentage. We controlled the entire game but I am not satisfied with our play during the last three minutes."

URAL Ekaterinburg head coach Oleg Okulov
"We got nervous and instead of fulfilling our plans we started to simplify the game. The opponents were precise from the perimeter, we failed to overcome them. The main positive result of our participation in the EuroChallenge is the more than 4,000 spectators who came to support their favourite team. This means that Ekaterinburg is ready for big basketball."

Gaz Metan Medias player Ivan Ivanovic
"It was a very hard and tough game. We tried to control it for 40 minutes, but it was a very complicated task. During the home game in Romania we were a little bit afraid, because it was our first game in the EuroChallenge but here we were better prepared and did our best to win."

URAL Ekaterinburg player Oleg Baranov
"Gaz Metan is a very strong team. We were eager to win, but unfortunately we failed, because our defence was not good enough."
