Nikola Mirotic sent this Tuesday a message of encouragement to Pablo Laso, coach of the Real Madrid, who suffered a heart condition last Sunday and has already been discharged. I would like to take advantage of this moment to send a lot of encouragement to Paul Laso. Today we have seen good news, that he has left the hospital. I send him a lot of encouragement, that he recovers as soon as possible and that he returns to the courts. In the end we realize what is important, health and family”, said the Barcelona power forward, who coincided with Laso at the white club from the arrival of the coach in 2011 until the player left for the NBA in 2014.
The Barcelona faces this Wednesday a transcendental match in Badalona in front of Joventut, which surprised the azulgranas in the second game of the Endesa League semi-final at the Palau and took home court advantage from them. Now he will try to give the bell to the heat of the Olympic.
mirotic sees the team “as it has all year. Nothing new, many times we have lost home court advantage. The important thing is that the team wants to continue competing and meet our goal. I have no doubts about my teammates, there is a lot of commitment and I know that we will do things very well in Badalona”.
Mirotic anticipates that the defensive effort will be key
The Barcelona star considers that the defensive effort will be key. “We have shown that if we defend well, normally, our attack comes out. We are capable of doing it very well, but we have also shown that we are not doing it. We know where they are hurting us, that it will be complicated and that there will be a good atmosphere… but we are the barca“, he finished.
