VIRTUS SEGAFREDO BOLOGNA

Cordinier vote 6 – You spend in defense, but in attack you see very little.
Mannion vote 6 – Seven minutes of great determination and 4 rebounds, even if every now and then he goes a little out of speed.
Belinelli vote 6.5 – Burst of 8 points in a row in the second quarter, then a very important basket in the last quarter. Double digit and presence.
Pajola vote 7 – Well in defense, very well in attack with important points in the last quarter. Double size that had been missing for a while.
Alibegovic vote 6 – Minutes in which there is no demerit, and he is good at suffering fouls and scoring free, something not taken for granted tonight.
Jaiteh vote 7 – Come back, definitely. Very present in rebound (10 of which 5 offensive) also scores a lot, with key points in the last quarter. He asserts himself against not easy clients like Hines and Biligha.
Shengelia vote 8 – Fights with the basket if he shoots from a distance, 1/5 from three and 1/6 to free. But as soon as she starts playing underneath she becomes unstoppable. 22 points and 8 rebounds, even 3 blocks, Milan has no idea how to stop him tonight.
Hackett vote 6 – It hurts immediately – blow to the left hip – then comes back and manages to make a good contribution. To understand his conditions in view of race 3.
Sampson vote 5.5 – Definitely worse than race one, tonight does not affect. 1/4 shot and little presence.
Weems vote 7 – It is important again, and it is no coincidence that Virtus wins. Precious points and above all excellent defense on Shields, who after a great start is practically removed from the game.
Theodosic vote 7 – Only one basket, but 8 very important assists. He manages his teammates very well, and plays until the end despite a blow to the finger taken in the third quarter.

Scariolo – The good rebounding work was decisive. They are balanced matches, in this one we led more than in the first. For us, controlling the defensive rebounds means putting the game at a pace that we like best. At the beginning what I had to do was remove Toko from the field, to calm him down a bit and make him regain confidence, the beginning had me a little worried. But here it works like this, if you have done something in your career and you have demonstrated it assumes that something you continue to show on the pitch, it works for everyone, it is the logic of things and Toko has proved it again. A player also capable of starting badly and then correcting his performance. We had to break the thread between Rodriguez and Hines and today we were more careful and we did well, which in race 1 had been harmful for us. Pajola? He was good, double the value of his performance especially after Hackett’s injury. I am very happy with the game he played.
Do you want to win one in Milan? Of course, of course, but it will be very hard. And Milan will have a big boost from the home crowd. The series is technically very balanced, let’s see if emotionally we can make up for that little bit of experience that we lack, especially under the basket.

MessinaCongratulations to Virtus, who played better than us especially from the end of the second quarter, with energy and excellent defense. We have missed many open pitches, now the series is coming to Milan, we will have to be ready.
Bentil? It was not his best evening, the first game he had played better, today he was conditioned by the problem he had in a game.
It’s nice that when we win you don’t ask me questions …
We are 1-1 after two very difficult matches in Bologna. If we won this too we were overjoyed, we didn’t win it, we fought and we think about the next one. The rebound fight? Key, so far whoever has won by rebound has won the game.
