Pianigiani: “The troubles will make us a better team”


Coach Simone Pianigiani talked about the upcoming Kaunas’ game for the EuroLeague Round 10: “Zalgiris’ position in the standing is false, they lost a couple of big games, Barcelona and CSKA, with the last shot and many of their players were huge in leading that team to the Final Four last season. They will be aggressive right from the beginning so we will have to overcome their pressure, limit the turnovers, march their intensity in the paint, because they can be dominant in rebounding, and be capable to build good shots even when we will have only a few seconds left in the shot-clock. Giving our sort rotations and the injuries we are not going to be very brilliant but this is the time to regroup because when the going is tough the teams become better. That’s our goal”.
