Quotes: Gaz Metan Medias vs. Tartu Rock

04.12.2012

Tartu Rock player Silver Leppik

"We started pretty well but in the second part of the game we rushed things and they made easy shots. In the third quarter we decided to try to put the ball down, but unfortunately we missed a lot, especially three-points shots. We tried to come back in the game but it isn't our homecourt and it was very difficult. They didn't surprise us with anything, we knew that they can shoot."

Gaz Metan player Ivan Ivanovic

"We expected a hard game and that is how it actually was. We were ready to play hard defence. I think that was the key to our win tonight and also the fact that we succeded in rebounding more than in the away game. We made some important shots and that was good for our morale."

Tartu Rock coach Gert Kullamae

"We started the game really good, then we lost our rhythm because we missed too many easy shots. We played a bad game, especially on offence. Gaz Metan was much better tonight. Our shooters missed a lot and this was a serious problem. I want to congratulate Gaz Metan.''

Gaz Metan coach Marcel Tenter

"It was a very hard game, we were under pressure after the defeat in the Romanian Championship. A chance like this doesn't come often and when it comes we must take it. The victory and the qualification comes at a very important moment for us. This game was like a final for us. It's possible that a new team was born today."
