Ataman: Shane Larkin came back, and I think my team came back…

Anadolu Efes will host Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv in the next round

Anadolu Efes coach Ergin Ataman talks after the 79-84 road win over Olympiakos.

“Shane Larkin came back, and I think my team came back. We started to play our regular game because this is the game we played the last two seasons, with penetration and passes and good pick-and-roll offense. I believe it is a very important victory for us, for our morale, because we started the season with some losses that were not in our expectations. But to beat Olympiacos here is very important for us because we know that they beat Maccabi and Milan on this court. And more than this, it’s important that we found our confidence. I believe that we will play much better.”

Shane Larkin made his season debut with 15 points on 4-for-13 field goal shooting and 4-for-7 free throws to go with 3 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal, 1 block and 0 turnovers.
