Pedro Martínez: “If we want our preparation to be good, we must continue playing to win”


Valencia Basket coach Pedro Martínez has stated in the preview of the matchday 5 of the 7days Eurocup against Cedevita Zagreb (Tuesday 31, 20:30, Fonteta, Teledeporte) he spects "is undoubtedly the fact that they play more than us, and that is generally very good for those who play more, as it is better prepared. We must think that we must prepare, we are playing our preparation, that preparation for the qualifiers come with good preparation. "


The trainer had an impact on the quality of the preparation, “if we want it to be a normal or good preparation. If we want it to be good we must play to win” Encouraging “we must play well for whatever is ahead, we must do it in the best way possible for what comes ahead. Obviously we play things through the competition system, but I think we should play well for our own preparation”.


In the visiting team, “the PG and the SG with Boatright and James have many points and many balls, but they are what they are, we will not be able to leave them to zero, but we do want to defend them well. Inside they have Bilan, who scores well inside and in the first leg did not have so much impact. They recover Marko Tomas, who we know, and have good ability to score. They have strengths that we will not minimize to zero, but a mediocre defense against this team can be key as they have the ability to score”.
