Pablo Laso, Real Madrid coach, highlighted on his 54th birthday that his team knew “keep your composure in the final minutes” and that that gave them victory “in a strange party“against AS Monaco.”Our first quarter has been very good, not so much because of us, but because of their failures. In the second quarter we lacked rhythm and they have been entering the gameLaso said.
“In the third quarter is when they have played better with Mike James very successful, but in the last minutes we have had patience and played well in attack or defense. We knew it was going to be difficult even though at the end of the first quarter it didn’t seem like it“added the Real Madrid coach.
Laso insisted on enhancing the “composure“in the final stretch.”The party turns strange, but we have been able to maintain our composure, not granting easy baskets and we have taken another step. They have been the most solid minutes“, he assured.
Mike James’ performance was once again stellar. “I don’t think anything special, just that it sucks that I do so well against my team. He has made a lot but many shots were well defended and he has given 9 assists“, he exposed.
“We can stop him, but then other players would grow. He is a great player,” he added. Regarding Adam Hanga who retired injured, the coach trusted that “It can be just a blow and that it is nothing serious“.
