Ergin Ataman’s postgame comments

Beşiktaş Coach weighed in on his team’s Eurochallenge victory.

‘Thanks to three wins, we are leading our group with a perfect record. Having a player like Deron Williams on your lineup really helps you out, but tonight he was something special. We don’t get to see a player score 50 points in a game too often. Despite the win, we gave up 94 points, most of them on aggressive drives to the basket. If we want to succeed in this tournament, we have to play better defense.’
