"I was calm even before the shot, the series are not ended yet, we just even the finals to 1-1. In the first game we did not perform well, but in the second we were improved, both in defense and attack, although we missed many free throws and open shots. Finally, we got lucky for once and we have to move forward, get some rest and work ahead of the next match.
Basketball should be played only in courts and the best team to win, with nice atmosphere by the fans, 'hot' stadiums but not overreaction. Extreme situations are not acceptable and we should be respecting especially the athletes who are playing. They are giving their 100% for their teams and many kids are watching our games, so we must give the right example to them.
Matches should be hosted in athletic conditions, with right behaviors, so those kids could watch them and take the correct motives. On Thursday, we should be serious and concentrated in order to win, the head coaches will select their match plans, if they want to change something, but the important thing is to be focused on the positive result", said the 34-year-old international guard.
