Pavel Spriridonov: "When the Frenchmen were in the lead we still didn't have any doubts"

At first it was unusual, but I really liked the support because the fans support us with all their strength. The guys and all of the coaches tried to help me adapt. I didn't go into the game at one hundred percent, but with each practice there is more progress. We were able to beat the French team thanks to our aggressive defense, we gave up a lot of points in the first half. In the third quarter, Strasbourg only scored ten points and it was easy to play on the attack and that's why we won the game.

When the Frenchmen went out on the lead we still didn't have any doubts, because we are always trying to win. Strasbourg is a strong team with a sold lineup. We were set on coming out to fight and that's what we did. It's worth saying that other teams that make it to the top-32 are all strong, but we are always set to go out and win.
