Holon head coach Dan Shamir:
"All of our thoughts go to Franklin [Hassell] and his family as they are going through a very tough time. We tried to do the best we could without him, but it wasn't enough to beat Paris tonight."
Holon player Lawrence Hill:
"We were surprised by how fast they are. We played zone defense, but they adapted well. They attacked the gaps and shot the ball very well."
Paris head coach Christophe Denis:
"What I ask of my players is for them to be the best basketball players they can be all the time, for every game, every practice. It is important to start the second round well, and especially at home, because we have a tough six weeks coming up. The travels to Holon and to Szolnoki won't be easy at all, so it is important to take every home game.
Paris player Andrew Albicy:
"We want to play every competition. We never choose to put the league first, or the Leaders Cup coming up, or the EuroChallenge. Every game we try to play our best game. What is important when you play twice a week is to take care of your body and use the free time, you have to rest. If we want to be competitive every game night it is a necessity."
