Adriano Vertemati: "Congratulations to Oldenburg. We couldn't get a handle on Dewayne Russell today. He played a great game. We, on the other hand, missed open shots. Our plan was to spread the load evenly, let the youngsters play, give Elias Harris minutes after his injury, we did all that. But we played without real fire, unfortunately, because the game no longer had any impact on our ranking. But still, we should always give our best - but today we didn't do that."
