Quotes Norrköping Dolphins vs. Södertälje Kings

13.11.2012

Dolphins head coach Paul Burke

"We were not getting the job done in the first three quarters. The Kings are very specific in what they want to run and did a good job. It was definitively another ugly game against the Kings, and they probably should have won today. We were horrible today, but the hard work ethic and the fact that we did not give up are important. At halftime I was really upset with our attitude. The guys were not playing for the team; they were playing for themselves. They were winning the rebound battle. They had 8 offensive rebounds that's a joke. We should never lose rebounds. That was the worst for me. But this was an important win."

Dolphins player Pierre Hampton
"Great comeback. We showed more will in the end. It was not a pretty game, but we won and that is what counts. We came out with higher intensity in the second half. We have a deep team, and almost anyone can come in and do the work."

Södertälje Kings player Adnan Chuk
"We lost by two points. It does not feel good of course. There was one period where we made mistakes and lost our game plan and that cost us. We were playing a very good game and had them the whole time but lost focus in the end. We have to step up when our best players are in foul trouble. Still, the Dolphins should get credit; they do not give up."

Södertälje Kings head coach Vedran Bosnic
"It makes me very sad when we lose in the final minutes. At the same time I am very proud of my guys, how they played the majority of the game, and what they are doing. But they do have to play for 40 minutes. Five turnovers in the last quarter definitively turned the game around, but that is what happens in basketball. I really like how Tobias Borg came out and played really well for being so young."
