Brose Bamberg lost on the 14th matchday of Turkish Airlines EuroLeague against Real Madrid with 66:81. Especially in the first quarter, the German champion did not compete at all (13:29). Best Brose scorer was Daniel Hackett with 13 points.
Andrea Trinchieri: „We played a bad game. It is one of the few times that my team did not fight, and that’s bad. If you allow yourself to think you are tired, you are going to be tired. It is very simple. Everybody is tired. I believe we lost the game in the first four minutes, when we did not play defense, we did not play offense. We have to focus all our energy at the beginning to try to set the tone of the game. We did not do that. We were extremely bad on defense, not smart on offense, and that cost us the game. I believe that tonight we were bad, and the fans don’t deserve these kind of games. We had to try. Maybe we won’t be good enough to beat Madrid, and of course the game in Kaunas cost us a lot because we played a great game, but the story is we have to learn quick how to regenerate ourselves and play the second game better. That’s the point. If you allow yourself to think you are tired, you are going to be dead tired. So excuses and explanations are for losers. Everybody’s tired and you have to find a way to manage it.“
