"Congratulations to Real Madrid. Obviously, when a team shoots the ball as well as they did, it is difficult to win, particular against such top quality team at home. We did not defend well in the first quarter, and put ourselves in a very deep hole. After that the game was even for three quarters, despite the fact they shot the ball so well. But we chased that the whole game and never gave ourselves a good chance to win. Llull was terrific, that is not first time in his career that he’s been great, but certainly tonight he had a special night. You can trap the ball out of his hands, but the way the rest of the guys were shooting, that would have been the problem, too. When you play a team that is that hot and that talented, it is going to be tough to win. There is no two ways about it. They shot the lights out, and I am sure Coach Laso will tell you the same thing. "
