Your two game winning streak was snapped to Leverkusen 2. Grevenbroich defended well. How bitter is it that you couldn’t score better?
We are trying to finish out with a good note to end the year.
Talk a little about the 40 minutes. What was the deciding moment in the fourth quarter that allowed Leverkusen 2 to get the win’?
We just couldn’t make shots late in the game, we played a great game until about 4 minutes left in the game, we just couldn’t get over the hump.
When you look at the stats, most were even. Were the 4 extra Leverkusen possessions out of turnovers the key?
Second chance points definitely cost us in the end but stats were even they just hit shots and we didn’t going down the stretch.
What was your impression of German Justin Gnad who had 17 points? His dad Hansi is a German basketball legend and was drafted by the 76ers in 1988.
Had a good game, respect to him and his dad that’s legendary.
You had another solid game of 25/6/5. I guess your 6 turnovers gave you fits after?
Yes most definitely just a few miss understandings but going back to watch the video and correct that for next game.
You next play the Lowen. They won the first game in a shoot out and three guys combined for almost 90 points. What will be key for winning?
Key for us is just taking care of the ball and hitting shots and having a full rotation on gameday, with that we will be good.
Thanks John for the chat.
