Janis Timma: "This match will be a good lesson for us"

I would not say that we had any truly great difficulties in this game. At some point we relaxed and tried to find the easiest way to victory. We threw some three-pointers, but missed some. This is what made Minsk feel confident and they scored some important shots and returned to the game.

However, at the end of the match we were able to play as a team, regained our 15-point advantage. Winning on the road is always very important and this game will be a good lesson for us. Even when leading by 20, you cannot relax, we must continue to build up an advantage and only when we have already won 30 points, then we can start to be creative.
