Drazen Anzulovic, BC Enisey Head Coach:
It is very difficult to speak, obviously we were without four key players, who weren’t playing for various reasons. That’s is why we didn’t stay in the game after two quarters of fight against Parma.
By half-time we had too many fouls with the big guys as Komissarov, Balashov and Hammonds had three fouls each. In the beginning of the third quarter Hammonds got his fourth and fifth fouls and we could not maintain required level of aggression and intensity in our game, especially in defence.
