Bartzokas: "We need to focus on the game against Red Star"

Giorgos Bartzokas was satisfied from his players’ performance following their road win over Larissa, however, he stressed that everyone needs to immediately focus on their road game against Red Star.  

“It was a win that we obviously had to make”, the ‘reds’ coach commented. And he went on to say: “We got a little more tired in the first half, because Larissa played exceptionally in defense, they pressured us a lot. Also, our opponent has two scorers hat have very good connection with basketball. So, it took us to play a little more serious in the second half and more specifically in the third quarter, for the game to go the way it did. Congratulations to my players. Our schedule is very taxing, since we have a game every two days. What we need to be doing now is to focus on the following game against Red Star. Congratulations to Larissa, I wish them all the best”.

* Moustapha Fall sprained his foot during the game and was not able to play in the second half.
