Eulis Báez and Luis Casimiro talked about the importance to grab a win in Lithuania

The captain of Herbalife Gran Canaria and the head coach spoke about tomorrow’s game in Panevezys in the week number nine in Eurocup. A win in Lithuania will ensure the top spot in Group A.

«We always fight for the win and we must try to keep the good things from Sunday in our mind. To play in Barcelona is not easy and at the end we had the chance to win, but we couldn’t».

«We had too many issues with some injuries. We are trying to pull out some extra energy in the court. The other day we have seen a good offensive version of Pasecniks. O’Neale was also great. Now we have Aguilar’s injury, he is very important for us because of his great shooting range, but he sprained his ankle. The new signing, Hollins, we have to see how he adapts to the team after the medical tests».

«We have the goal in mind to be first in our group, but more imporant is to keep doing good basketball and have in our minds that every basketball game is important. We must want to do it well».

«Lietkabelis Panevezys is a very physical team. They have great players to play inside and Galdikas is a strong man that we have to pay attention. We have to do our job and try to win in Lithuania».

«The behavior of the team is excellent regarding the work ethic until the last moment. To react after a 10-point deficit in Barcelona was a great sign. And also with our medical problems. We had Aguilar’s injury in the first half and with Planinic not at his 100%. The team attitud was amazing».

«We sign Ryan Hollins with the idea to reinforce our inside play. Planinic, Hendrix, Báez and Aguilar had problems in the recent past, so we want to have a better balance inside and he is a player who come to Gran Canaria to give us a hand».

«Tomorrow’s game versus Lietkabelis Panevezys is a game to keep growing in our game. We have to win to ensure our first place and is important to do it as soon as possible. It would be a great achievement».

«Lietkabelis Panevezys kept doing things great in their domestice league and they also had three Eurocup wins. We must control Lavrinovic brothers and the poing guard Williams, who is a key player for them. They are a very good team, but in Gran Canaria we did a great job to stop them and they couldn’t show all their potential. We have to be at our 100% if we want to win».
