Hezonja, critic: "The first half was summer basketball, a shame"

Ethe Croatian Mario Hezonja, who scored twenty points in the victory of his team, Real Madridagainst Red Star, was critical of the intensity that his team showed in the first two quarters of the Euroleague game of basketball that they lost this Friday, in which he said that they practiced “summer basketball”, and declared that this way of playing is “a shame, because you have to know where you are; and respect the shield.”

Real Madrid, with nothing at stake due to its qualifying situation – first place is assured -, won 101-94 against Red Star, in a duel in which they came to go sixteen points down midway through the third quarter.

We played poorly in the first half and well in the second half. You have to respect each rival and we have respected them more in the second half than in the first. The first was like summer basketball, up and down, to see what would happen. It’s a shame at Real Madrid. You have to know where you are and respect the shield,” said Hezonja, at the end of the game.

I don’t think anyone watching TV respected this in the first part.. Real Madrid always has to play at its best, no matter where we are,” confessed the white player, who revealed that Chus Mateo’s timeouts in the third quarter made them “think about pride.”

When you play here you always have to give your maximum, that’s why we win“, concluy
