GBA Fio banka J. Hradec
Gilbert Abraham (GBA Fio Bank coach J. Hradec): “Nymburk did a great job, especially when shooting from a distance. They made a lot of open bullets from the corner. In the end, they had a nearly 50 percent success rate in threes. It is a great lesson for our team that it is necessary to improve and better defend the corner of the field. Today they saw that we still have a lot of work to do. But it was a very good test for us. Another big difference was in the rebounds. We lost 30 rebounds, which also shows that we have a lot of work to do. I´m glad we could play against an opponent who makes us better. Compared to the match with Pardubice, there was a big difference, especially in the rebound. We did not defend badly, but then we gave Nymburk more shots. That cost us a match. "
Marek Welsch (GBA Fio Banka point guard J. Hradec): “After the victory over Pardubice, the match against Nymburk played better for us than if we had lost in the last round. The first win of the season definitely boosted our confidence. However, we came to the first half, which basically decided the whole match, with too much respect. It seemed to me that the home team had converted perhaps eighty percent of the free shots available to them. That was one difference. To this was added a large number of second chances after the offensive rebound. We lost a huge difference in this statistic. "
