"Congratulations to the players of Panathinaikos, they are the moral winners. I can't be closing my eyes any more, we have received the message. We did not speak after the previous match, when they targeted James Gist, tonight the same thing happened with Nick Calathes and Antonis Fotsis.
We were better at first half, but Olympiakos had 20 free throws, I don't want to make any comments, make fun of my team or of you. Referee Piloidis was not awarding even the fouls the players of Olympiakos were admitting, we played the last five minutes without our leader, Nick Calathes, because he had targeted him.
I don't believe that we missed a real chance, the game was not fair, Panathinaikos played better tonight and deserved to win. I don't care if my players are younger than the opponents, Giorgos Papagiannis was a major absence at previous clashes", said the experienced coach at Press Conference.
