They won the last ten minutes 29: 7, won the last five minutes 20: 5, and when Autrey even changed the final horn shot, which he leveled to 74:74, the trampled hall, which drove its pets in the final part practically standing, literally exploded. The electrifying atmosphere pushed Šotnar’s barge into the coveted bronze port, but the Ústí nad Labem region’s further erasure of more than twenty points lost too much force. Although the nervous Brno residents moved the score for the first time after only two minutes, in the end they managed to end the critical situation and force a third duel on Monday on the home board.
“I mix positive and negative feelings from this match. Negative from how we entered the match. Again, as in every match this year, we allowed Brno to build a point cushion. Positive, of course, from how we managed to make Of course, I feel a huge disappointment in the match, because before the match, and then in overtime, I believed in us, but unfortunately it didn’t work out. We have to put together and fight in the last match on Monday, “said Ústí coach Jan Šotnar.
“If we lose at home by 20 points and we can come back like this, we didn’t have the strength left in the end, no miracle happened. It will be decided on Monday,” shouted Sluneta captain Ladislav Pecka.
The Moravians valued the won winnings. “We are mainly happy for the victory, because we needed to win here. But I think the whole match, except for the last quarter, we were better. But the most important thing is that we managed it. I’m really looking forward to Vodovka on Monday, I hope it will be completely full, this match is a decade for Basket Brno. I believe it will be great, “added the assistant coach Martin Vaněk.
“I think three quarters were a better team, we did what we said in defense, we defended very well, which was reflected in the attack. But in the fourth quarter we did not succeed at all. The sun got threes and fast baskets. and the pressing at the end, which caused us problems and we made stupid losses during it, pushed the match into overtime. by another, I expect a balanced ending again, which I hope we will turn to our side, “added Jakub Nečas.
