What is your assessment of the game?
It was a good game because the rival made things difficult, especially on a physical level. With its NBA players, the great players that are in Europe. We knew that the rival was important and that this team with Gobert, Batum and Heurtel will be very strong. It already is … But we had a good performance. We had a bump in the first quarter but luckily we managed to stop it and then we went up with altruism and good ball circulation. Defensively I think we are pretty good.
How is Juancho?
We do not know. He has gone to the hospital but we have no fresh news.
Have you had good vibes with the team?
Yes. Abalde is having an excellent preseason. Usman is entering, Darío has had a few minutes with personality. Without success, but it has been there .. I think Willy is already consolidated. In Paris we will make some changes and then we will have to decide the twelve that will continue to Tokyo although we will not continue with only twelve to Las Vegas, but with more.
Have you felt the audience of the Carpena?
Yes very good. They have just told us that there will be no public in Tokyo so I was thinking that this will be one of the last games that we will play with the public, so we have to play it.
Are you happy with how the team is at this point?
A completely happy coach can never be. I clearly see the areas for improvement. Communication is essential. There are systems still pinned, there is a player that rusts. Sure there is room for improvement.
If Juancho’s is a dislocation, can he miss the Games?
I have done law, not medicine.
