"It's not enough to play a good game. We have to stay focused . During the tournament we have played great defense but we had some empty periods. This cannot happen against Greece. We must be competitive. Focus is the key to the game. We are more offensive tha Greece but the Greeks are more experienced. Rudy Fernandez, Pau Gasol and Pau Ribas are in better form than others. Nobody's in th best condition though. It's always complicated when you compare. They have players thta play on the NBA and in the Euroleague Final4. They have depth" the experienced coach said.
About Spanoulis: "Spanoulis is one of the best players. He can do everything on the court. He scores, he playes defense and is always there in the crucial moments of the game. He gives his team stability, he calms his teammates and he leades them. He is not selfish".
"Bourousis and Koufos are in great form and are very accurate. Calathes and Zisis also help. We cannot disappear Spanoulis but we can cut him down from the rest of the team. Koufos and Antetokounmpo play in the NBA fairly. Greece use the play with 3 guards. Antetokounmpo playes as a small forward and power forward as well. We have studied our opponents and we should remain focused to do a great job against tough opponents".
