"I want to talk about the team. We were great during the first half. Slovenians fought back and created many porblems to us. When they reduced the deficit to 2 points we had the ability and mentality to recontrol the game. Dragic and Blazic scored some crazy shots. Calathes played some great defenses and Vasilis on the oofense scored and made us feel more comfortable. We can play with 3 guards. Antetokounbo did some fouls but played great on defense. Maybe against the French we can't use this plan" the 31-year-old guard said.
About last year: "This year we have a more experienced team than last year. We knew that the Serbians were going to play big. We didn't have the energy required and the Serbians scored shot after shot. We 've said it before, the tournament begins in Lille. Whoever the opponent is, we should stay focused for 40 minutes. We haven;t won for 6 years iin a knock out stage. We have to stay united".
