"Milan will be a tough opponent, they will struggle without pressure. They play good basketball and in many games had the opportunity to win. They always fight until the end and we must be ready for it. Definitely it will not be an easy game. We know that the game is important for us. Our mentality will be the key of the game", said the 44-year-old former head coach of Barcelona Lassa (2008-16).
"It's a must-win game for us. If you've seen their games, you will find that it is a militant team. It's a tough team with good coach and good players. Every game in the Euroleague is difficult, whether against the last or the first team. We have to play good to beat them", was the opinion of international point guard and captain of the Greens, Nick Calathes.
