Ergin Ataman: We knew it wasn’t going to be easy

Beşiktaş Head Coach was much relieved after the close victory

‘Olin Edirne is one of those teams which don’t give up until the final buzzer, so we knew it wasn't going to be easy. They showed their quality by staying close the whole game. We nevertheless got some clutch baskets from Zoran Erceg and Hawkins in the final quarter and managed to win the game. I congratulate my players on their strong performance, especially down the stretch. After the departure of Deron Williams, I noticed some empty seats in the Arena today. We are currently sharing the top spot with Efes and Galatasaray. I am sure they will comeback to pack the place if we keep on winning like this.
