ANDhe Lithuanian Sarunas Jasikevicius, Barça coach, congratulated his players for having certified first place in the regular phase of the Endesa League, although he had to do so with a hurried comeback (72-74).

“I want to congratulate our boys and our fans. It is very important to talk about the regular season. It is not a title, but it has a lot of merit for the work of the boys, more so in times of pandemic. It has a lot of merit. The playoff will start everything from zero, but it is a very nice moment to celebrate a little”, he indicated in the press conference he offered after the match.

If you come for a walk, this is what happens

Jasikevicius was critical of his team’s play until the break after a first half in which he was 22 points behind the Lugo team. “The first half was not worthy of our club, the reaction was very good, we have to talk about 24 points conceded in the second half. It was a bit of a game… I don’t know what to say, but it’s not easy here,” he declared.

The Barcelona coach admitted that his team gave away “the first half, with only five defensive fouls”, and advocated “improving a lot”. “If you come for a walk, this is what happens,” he said about the first twenty minutes.

Breogán was scared to win and this helped us but it is not the level we want to show

Breogán entered the last quarter with a lead of fourteen points, but saw how they slipped away with only six points scored. “Breogán was scared to win and this helped us but it’s not the level we want to show,” said Jasikevicius, who welcomed the return of Higgings.
