Ergin Ataman: ‘We won but we made the same mistakes’
Ergin Ataman, the coach who made it to the Euroleague Final-Four for the second time in his career. “We played great basketball in 3 quarters, but we stopped again in the last quarter. We made the same mistakes. At the end of the match, we won by chance and by chance,” he said.
Anadolu Efes made the same mistake they made against Real Madrid in the Euroleaugue Play-Off, against CSKA Moscow in the first leg of the Final-Four. The biggest reason for the prolongation of the Play-Off was leaving the game in the last quarter. The same scenario happened here. Coach Ergin Ataman stated that they learned from these mistakes while coming to Germany, but in practice it was not reflected on the field. After the CSKA victory, Coach Ataman first mentioned this and said:
‘We stopped again in the last quarter’
“I’m not happy at all because we made the same mistakes. We played great basketball in 3 quarters. But we stopped again in the last quarter, we made incredible mistakes. We couldn’t stop Will Clyburn and he played great. We gave him too many one-on-one chances. one-on-one. We stopped playing. We will play the final, hopefully we don’t make these mistakes
