Ainars Bagatskis: "We were 'ready to play' right from the start today. The question was, after the difficult game in Ulm two days ago, how long we will be able to keep up the aggressiveness and energy. In such games, against such experienced opponents, small things are decisive in the end, supposed trivialities influence the important factors. All in all, we did a very good job today.”
