PPablo Laso, coach of Real Madrid, highlighted the “magnificent match by all” of his players but warned that Saturday, in Manresa, will be “completely different”.

“It was a magnificent match for everyone. We faced very well and understood that we had to be tough and consistent in defense. The dominance in rebounding has given us the advantage that we have managed to maintain very well”, highlighted Pablo Laso.

“We have also been able to share minutes in a victory that was fundamental, because the playoff is short,” he added.

After the Euroleague final, there could be some doubts about the physical and mental recovery of the team.

“I am happy with the control of the game that we have had. The team has recovered very well from the physical effort,” he said.

“When you lose a final, you always think about how the players are going to react and the truth is that I give them a 10. They have been magnificent in attack and defense. We have been able to share minutes. After having lost the Euroleague final by one point You always have some doubt,” he continued.

“In Manresa the game is going to be completely different. They play with a lot of energy and are very dangerous”, concluded Pablo Laso.
