Pesic sad but proud

Day after his team Valencia Power Electronics lost game 5 in Euroleague Playoffs against Real Madrid, coach Svetislav Pesic said that he is very sad but proud of his players.

“We didn’t played good defense and have allowed the opponent to gets a high number of rebounds in the offense, which was the main reason for the defeat. Real was not better team than us in other aspects of the game. At the end, though, they won, and the winners are remembered.”

Despite loss of his team Dusko Savanovic was named MVP of Game 5. He scored 19 points and grabbed 6 rebounds.

Dusko Savanovic said:
“I am satisfied with my performance, but I can not be satisfied with the final result. I prefer to have scored fewer points if we won. Good play of individuals does not mean anything if the team does not win in the end of the game.”

I agree with Savanovic. He really had a good game, but unfortunately it seems that he also played good only in first half, like a whole team as well.

So, now we know Final Four semifinal match-ups:

Panathinaikos – Montepaschi Siena
Maccabi Electra – Real Madrid

If you ask me, I will predict Panathinaikos vs. Maccabi Electra in Final game, and hopefully team of Zeljko Obradovic (Panathinakos) will win Euroleague title in this season. - Under Armour, Protect This House.
