"We showed our mentality, fought till the end and remained concentrated, it was a very good game and Spanoulis did what he knows to do best. It was a real fight, we were strong in defense, smarter than in the first clash and manage to leave victorious. We showed that we want the victory more than Panathinaikos, but the series are not ended and we have to keep working hard and improving.
Both teams have great players, so it is more a matter of heart and passion, Thursday's clash will be decisive and we have to beat them in our stadium, take a 2-1 lead and be well-prepared to win the title.
Even after Diamantidis' 3-point-shot, I was sure that we could still win because we have one of the best players in Europe by our side. We want Spanoulis to take the ball at these cases, he is our captain and a man of great shots. Printezis was incredible, if you think that he lost his father just before the first game, he has made many excellent performances during the season and especially now.
It is always good to see my old teammate at Maryland James Gist, I know him well, but when I enter the court I forget our relationship and try to give my best for Olympiakos' victory", said the 31-year-old former player of Pınar Karşıyaka at SDNA.
