Coach Neven Spahija: "I would like to congratulate Olympiacos for their win and for playing the better basketball tonight. This was our worst game this season, whatever we tried we couldn’t do, we were soft and they were very aggressive and they deserved to win the way they did. During the game we realized we didn't have any chance so we replaced the starters, the bench players played more than they usually do as we were thinking about sharing the minutes so that we can be ready for the game against Red Star. 

Looking to what's ahead Alex Tyus shared: "A tough game, a game we want to put behind us quickly because we got another important game on Thursday, so we'll go back watch the film, learn from our mistakes and move on".

DeShaun Thomas, who finished the game with 9P&6R, added: "Olympiacos played really well, we tried to come in and fight and compete, but they are a very good team they came and made big shots, they scored a lot of points inside, there's always another chance and another day, we got our next game on Thursday and we got to get that win and keep moving forward". 



Jake Cohen: "Every team in the EuroLeague is motivated regardless of what happened in the past, we won our last game and we were just as motivated as Olympiacos was tonight, we just lost the game. We have a lot of mistakes to fix from tonight starting with myself I got to be a lot better, I made some stupid mental errors but each of us is going to look at it see what we can do better and that will bring us together as a team and hopefully we'll improve".

"They came out and did a really great job attacking the paint", said Michael Roll. "In the first half nearly all of their points were in the paint, they got to the line. They definitely created more physicality in the first half and we couldn't and it wasn't possible for us to get back", he added. "Giving up 54 points especially with their pace which is typically a low score. They got a lot of offensive rebounds and got to the line that was the key for us and we had a bad game, now we have to bounce back". 

Regarding the question if it was because they needed to rest Roll responded: "No, you can never rest your head on that, no matter the circumstances for anyone, we just need to come out and talk about what went wrong and really focus for Thursday".
