Pesic: "People think I'm mad at Mirotic, but not"


After the victory against the Maccabi in Tel Aviv (96-73), Barca coach Svetislav Pesic, praised the performance of Nikola Mirotic (25 points and 14 rebounds) and, on his relationship with the Hispano-Montenegrin, he stressed that with the best players you don't have to have problems.

At the press conference after the match held at the Palau Blaugrana, the Serbian coach referred, laughing, to the exchange of words that both had in a moment of the match against Fenerbahce last Tuesday. "A Serbian and a Montenegrin speak with that intensity. People think we are angry, but we are not. I'm not crazy, he is the best player. With the best players you don't have to have problems, even more so when he has captured 24 rebounds in the last two games, "he said.

About the encounter, Pesic highlighted the defensive reaction of his team in the second half, when he completed a 53-27 run to take the game. "We had problems with our organization and that is why we lost confidence. In the first half we were not at the level we wanted to defend outside. This is why we improve, "he added. Also, Pesic thanked fans for support of the Palau Blaugrana that, in their opinion, they understood that "at the beginning of the second part" the team needed "something else".
