Sergio Scariolo before moving to Istanbul to play Efes: “We start the second leg of the Euroleague with a very tough game in Istanbul. We’re aware that, from this point on, every game has to become an opportunity to reach the number of wins necessary to qualify for the Top 16. We know what need to do in order to become consistently good. Now it’s a matter of finding the physical and mental strenght to do it on the court, in actual games”.
Malik Hairston has this to say: “It’s a huge game for us, we need to go out there and re-establish ourselves and our game. We need the game in Milan, so we know they’re coming out to get a revenge. We better be ready to accept the challenge”.
