Last chance for Ephesus

Matching tough opponents in the Play-Offs after the FinalFour, back with the trophy, Anadolu Efes first passed Pınar Karşıyaka and then had to make an incredible effort in front of Galatasaray, where there was a great rivalry. The Navy-Whites, who could not find the opportunity to rest and especially have difficulties in terms of Turkish player rotation, will try their last chance to maintain their league cup chance today. Coach Ergin Ataman and his students, who want to use their home advantage well, want to win their first match in the final series.

Ergin Ataman: We will lift the trophy again at Ülker Arena

Anadolu Efes Coach Ergin Ataman made important statements before the critical match. Expressing that they played 10 final matches, including the Final Four, in 22 days, Ataman said: “It is a fact that we are tired, but the champions never give up. I appreciate the struggle of the Fenerbahçe team, but I do not forget the insulting mocking slogans against me in the hall. We have reached the top of European and Turkish basketball in the last 4 years. We are the pride of Turkey, even though those who shout these slogans cannot digest it. We are the team that fell behind 2-0 in the final series in the past and became champion from there, always succeeding in impossibilities. We will be the champions and we will win the cup again with Ülker, just like last year. We’ll lift it in the Arena.”
