ANDhe Barça coach Sarunas Jasikevicis considered that the Barça team lost this Sunday’s game against Bitci Baskonia “on the way from Istanbul to Barcelona” because they did not go out to play with the necessary mentality and desire.

“They have been better, especially at the level of desire. It is sad because you lose again because you do not prepare yourself mentally to play. We lost on the way from Istanbul to Barcelona,” said the Lithuanian in reference to last Friday’s match at the Anadolu Efes track.

The Barça coach regretted that the coaching staff had not been able to motivate the squad for the game: “We have not been able to lower our asses, defend and suffer. We have not left them below 20 points in any quarter. It is impossible to pass from being so good to being so bad in 48 hours, it’s mentality. “

Jasikevicius acknowledged that the team is “a little fair” in physical form and pointed to Nikola Mirotic, Sertac Sanl and Kyle Kuric, who fell short on many shots.

“Mirotic, Kuric, Sanli or Jokubaitis have not been brilliant, but they were here fighting. It is the minimum. Some players are still in vacation mode, we are in December and they have not yet appeared. And others choose games,” he settled.
