"Olympiakos is a good team with clear ideas. They changed drastically many things this year both on offense and defense. Their offense depends on transition game and offensive rebounds a lot, they play physical. We expect tough game, we go there to compete and to fight", said the 46-year-old Greek head coach of Euroleague winners.
"It is a pleasure for me to come back to Piraeus every time, but it is also a big responsibility and expectation of a big fight. Olympiakos and its fans make you play at your best level when you want to win, and this is something we want in every game. They are athletic, they run a lot and crash the boards so we have to step up on defense and play our game", was the opinion of 29-year-old international, who was a member of the Reds between 2007 and 2011.
