“I have to congratulate our fans and our guys for a job well done, especially in the second part. We came out a bit cold and we didn’t have the same concentration as Burgos, “admitted the Barcelona coach.

“From the half of the second quarter we played a very good basketball with ups and downs, as is normal in a week with three games and also with very long trips, “Saras continued.

“The most important thing in these situations with so much load is to get the games forward and the boys have done it against a team that is playing great basketball and that will surely aspire to everything this season, “concluded the Lithuanian.

In a similar vein, Pierre Oriola He admitted that it was a “difficult game. We started very weak and they set the pace. We were out of everything we had talked about, but in the second half we have imposed more physique, we have tightened the defensive lines more, we have been more aggressive and we have moved the ball better. “

“It’s a shame that at the beginning of the season we missed some games, but we have Madrid two victories away, we are still alive and we can aspire to the first place, although everything happens to follow week after week and try to win the classic “, added the Barcelona captain.

The Balearic Àlex Abrines agreed that the first part “was a bit complicated. We came from two very strong Euroleague games and we were a bit ‘broken’, but after the break we increased the intensity and we knew it was a very important game to get to the El Clasico two victories from Madrid “.
