Pianigiani: “We’ll need personality in a very emotional game”


Coach Simone Pianigiani talked about the very emotional game Olimpia is going to play on Thursday at home against Efes Istanbul: “It’s unpredictable because I expect the mental factor to be the key one. Both teams don’t want to stay that low in the standings. They are a pick and roll team, to ignite the bigs, starting with Dunston, who’s playing more at the 5 now along a classic stretch 4 like Derrick Brown, and to let their guards create off  the dribble. We’ll have to defend the pick and roll with personality, and make the open shots that we’ll create. But it’s the emotional part the key component of this game”.
