El Chacho, to Hezonja: "If you lower your head, I'll raise it for you"

Tavares and Williams-Goss had an outstanding performance in Madrid’s victory in Belgradebut Mario Hezonja also played a key role with 12 points, 14 rebounds, 3 assists and a PIR of 22 with hardly any rest (37:10 on court), serving as power forward in the absence of the suspended Yabusele and Deck. The Croatian forward wanted to highlight the figure of Sergio Rodríguez, who was fundamental in the second quarter, when the whites got down to work, the comebackto turn around a marker that placed them 15 points down: “The entry of Chacho was very important because he started yelling like a real veteranYou have to listen more to people like that, because of their voice, their experience. First he lifted me up and then the whole team. He exactly told me that if he lowered his head, he was going to raise it; she has lifted us all.

Hezonja, what has a good relationship with the Partizan fansapplauded on the previous visit during the regular phase, enjoyed the atmosphere at the Stark Arena: “Because of the atmosphere and the importance of the matches, there is nothing higher than playing something like this. Today it can be said that we really fought to win the game and we did it, but it’s no good if we don’t win one more and return the series to Madrid. The heart of the champion? Always, we are Real Madrid. No one has come back from 2-0, but there are reasons to believe, although if today was superlative, imagine what happened on Thursday. These courts, like the one at Panathinaikos, are crazy, but you have funyou play to play these matches, which I personally love. Everything was normal, as expected, sporty. People shout, cheer, but there will be no problems. Now we have to correct mistakes and get out there again. With Lessort and Deck on Thursday each team goes up one level.

The Croatian forward dedicated words of praise to two of his teammates, the great stars of the night: The Williams-Goss thing has been incredibleHe is always prepared, he works in Valdebebas at the team’s disposal and, although he has had bad luck with injuries, he is helping us a lot, like a real base. Regarding Tavares: “It has also been incredible, I don’t know how he is physically, really, but to see him with that bandage on his leg… It didn’t seem like he could play and look what he’s done, he gives us one more level”.
