Š.Jasikevičius was happy with the reaction of the players, his opponent felt deserving of victory

Barcelona’s “Barcelona” in the Euroleague remains stumbling, although in the third round he walked on an extremely thin rope.

After the extension, the Catalans broke the Olympiacos of Piraeus, and Šarūnas Jasikevičius after the match rejoiced the fans, but not in their respect.

“For the fans, the matches in the stands and in front of the TVs may have been great, high intensity. I had a lot of suffering as a coach. With such a busy schedule, I don’t know how we had to find the time to figure out what we were going to do. We did not implement our plan, and before their exchanges in the defense we looked poor. We tried to prepare, but we just have a lot of matches, ”said the Lithuanian after the match.

The specialist singled out a return to the match in the third quarter and called the hard-won victory just a good lesson.

“I don’t think a lot happened to us, especially in the first half of the match, we lost a lot of easy throws. Congratulations to the players who pulled the match. Such matches strengthen the team, but we have a lot to learn from it. Especially the details. In the third half, the reaction was fantastic, we involved the match and the fans, which helped a lot. Later, we lost the rhythm, but we won and we will take such a victory, “the strategist assured.

Meanwhile, Olympiacos head coach Georgios Bartzokas did not hide their resentment and felt deserved to win the match.

“It simply came to our notice then at the end of the overtime. We believe that by taking at least one of those balls or not offending against Pierre Oriola we were able to win the match. We deserved to win. We played with all our heart and followed the match plan against a very tough opponent. We had our chance, but we didn’t take advantage of it. Let’s forget this, because in two days we will play against “Žalgiris”, said the specialist.
