Cook: “We won by defending well”


Omar Cook is the man of the day in Zagreb, not just because he made five threes and had six assists, he also scored and made play after play in the clutch minutes. “We forgot about Avellino, it was a bad game, we palyed with no energy. We have to remember that our team depends by the way we play defense. We know we have scorers. Today, the edfense created easy baskets in transition and when we had to play laf.court we moved the ball around very effectively to hit the open man. It’s  not important who playes well, it can be me or any other guy, because by defending well and doing the little things necessary to win, in the end we win. Over time we’ll be a great team but we have a long way to go. It’s early in the season, we have new guys but we’re improving”.
