Pianigiani: “We’ll defend as a team and it’s crucial to finish better”


Coach Simone Pianigiani talked about the upcoming game in Munich before running the “day before” practice. “Just like Barcelona, Bayern has a lot of physicality so it’s crucial for us to keep our tempo. The key is to limit the turnovers that cost the Barcelona game and to finish better offensively because our shot selection has been good. Bayern doesn’t have the big men that Barcelona has but the perimeter players have size and they can open up the floor with their centers and a big like Derrick Williams who is extremely talented and can make us struggle. It’s necessary to defend well as a team, limit turnovers, select the shots well and make them”.
