TJ Parker: I am not surprised. We proved that we can beat anybody

The french team recorded the first home win of the season in Euroleague against Barcelona

ASVEL Villeurbanne coach TJ Parker talks with the media after the big win over Barcelona.
“I am not surprised. We have been practicing well and we got a guy back like Norris [Cole] who can help us scoring points and doing all those little things. For me, defensively, we did a great job. Everything we wanted to do, we did it, so they deserved it. If we just beat Barcelona, the number one team, I think we can beat anybody in any given day. And today, we proved that we can beat anybody.”

“I am really happy for the players. I am really happy because, like I always said, they work hard in practice every day. We are practicing well and I think Norris gave us a push. I think he was missing a little bit and scored some points. But I think it was a good all-around game. I mean, we were up the whole game against the best team in Europe, the best defense. It is well-deserved for the guys.”
