On the performance of his players

“In the locker room, I still tell my players that I want to insult themi don’t do it because i will only remember the second half but the first is outrageous with intentions. We’re supposed to be on a mission, but this is the Big Mop. It’s a sketch! In the second half we change our defense a bit, we shake it and we succeed. The room comes together with us and an extraordinary scenario happens. Last but not least ! Because we played a lot of bad luck we finally have a scenario that drives us insane with a win we are aiming for.

On the game board

“I thought that tactically we prepared well for this game, I said it again in the morning with my assistants… At half-time (27-57) you tell yourself that luckily you prepared well (laughs ) After what’s happening, it’s beyond reality…”

“We suffered, accepted everything, we got slapped in the face and we didn’t do anything. At halftime, those who don’t want to defend themselves or who are depressed could be left on the bench. We use the guys who have the quality to use the energy.”

To the mood

Basketball is amazing, we’re playing a game of idiots all the same. We get whistled at in the first half, which I can understand. In the end this happens. I don’t know what to say. I loved the space, the little touch that brings in the final basket, it can be the energy of the space that gave it. “

On the sequel

“You can’t trivialize, but you can’t ignite. We can’t think of ourselves as world champions in three days. You have to take advantage of it, it’s wonderful what happened. From tomorrow we recover and return to the Strasbourg game. “
