Paris Levallois head coach Christophe Denis
"I am really happy to win this game after all, in front of a strong team like Pitesti, and they proved this mostly in the first two quarters. We came back in the second part, we played more like a team, we shared the ball and we lifted the intensity of the game. We played good defence, that gave us the chance to run the floor and score easy baskets on fast-break. I congratulate the home team, they are a really strong team and that is the reason I am even more happy that we won tonight."
Paris Levallois player Maleye Ndoye
"The atmosphere was great, the gym was great, I like to play in this kind of gym. They surprised us in the first part, but we were able to come back. We played a different game in the second part, and step by step, point by point, we fought and finally we won the game. But for sure, it was not at all an easy win."
Pitesti head coach Tudor Costescu
"We started the game very well, confident, they were surprised by our game. But after that, we had a mental block in the 3rd quarter, many individual mistakes, easy mistakes, some that I never ever experienced before. We went down physically in the second half, practically we lost by 30 points in 20 minutes. Paris Levallois had excellent percentages in the seond part, but we also let them have such good figures with our very poor defence. They are a very good team, but also our little experience in these kind of games gave them the chance."
Pitesti player Popa Calota
"Paris Levallois have really good and experienced players. After half time they looked completely different. They had their chances, we had ours also, but we didn’t know how to take advantage of these chances."
