Igor
Kokoskov
It can be said that Georgian basketball fans have never seen such dramatic and spectacular basketball performance at Tbilisi Sports Palace played by Georgian national team. It is
very common to say that both teams deserved to win the match and it is exactly such occasion. No one can say that Zaza Pachulia, Viktor Sanikidze, Manuchar Markoishvili and
their teammates did not deserve victory, but it is also newsworthy that Mirza Teletovic, Zack Wright and Ante Masics team also deserved two points. Nothing can change, this
time Georgian national basketball team lost, but it is impossible to criticize Georgian players. But it does not mean that the players as well as chairman did not make any mistake
(such thing does not happen at basketball match) but today Bosnians were luckier than Georgians in equal fight. Despite luckiness, Alexand Petrovics players showed a big
determination. It goes without saying that Bosnians are high-class players. Totally guests advanced for 23 minutes and won three periods from four, in the decisive moment they
managed to mobilize better than Georgians (besides this episode when they were given 2 technical penalties), which is really important factor in basketball.
.. You are supposed to remember that in the first qualifying match against Bosnia, Georgians gained superiority in the first period, this time Bosnians were playing more efficiently
and advanced at the beginning. Actually during the starting period guests had superiority (5:0, 7:3, 18:14) and mini-time ended in favor of them 20:16. During this period Zack
Wright was the best player. In the second period Georgians mobilized, as a result of Pachulia and Msrkoishvilis attempt, Georgians gained superiority- 27:20. In such way
Georgian managed to win the second ten-point period and before the time-out the score was 43:40 in favor of Georgia. In the first time Viktor Sanikidzes brilliant playing in
defense must be mentioned. According to coaches instructions he stuck to Teletovic and did not let him shake a hand. Teletovic managed to gain 2 points only three minutes
before the match and during the whole match he gained only 4 points.
From the second time started nerves war. After Giorgi Tsintsadzes three-point kick 50:44 we advanced and till the end of the period we kept superiority. After the third quarter,
Pullen did his best and the score was 74:72. Soon situation got tense and leaders of the Bosnian team gained so many personal fouls that there was risk of sending off.
It was clear that the main fight was ahead and it happened so. There was equal fight and at the end of the time Teletovic advanced his team with 7 points, five minutes were left
before ending the period- 92:85. Georgians had enough time for overcoming 7-point difference and Georgians did their best. Sinanovic gained personal foul and Pachulia scored
only one penalty, as for Markoishvili he scored both of the penalties, Pullen scored after efficient attack and Georgians advanced- 99:98. 29 seconds before ending the fourth
quarter, Markoishvili scored three-point kick and we advanced (103:102) and as a result we had real chance of winning the match, but 21 seconds before the final siren
Teletovic kicked from dressing room, scored and advanced his team 105:103. Igor Kokoskov took minutebreak. Unfortunately Georgians were very hurry in the decisive
moment, Pullen tried to score three-point kick, but his kick was not exact and finally the match ended in favor of Bosnians 107:103. As a result Bosnian national basketball team is
leader of the group.
In a word, it was pitiful failure and as a result of it Georgians lost chance of taking the first place in the group (it is impossible Bosnia to lose home match with Romania), but
gaining right of competition at European championship is realistic and Georgian players will use this chance in the upcoming matches.

At the press-conference, which was held after the match Igor Kokoskov chairman of Georgian national basketball team appeared first time and explained reasons of the failure.
first of all I would like to congratulate Bosnia this victory. It played better and gained victory. Our guys fought till the end and played very well, but it was not enough for victory.
You have to play well in defense as well as in offence against such team as Bosnia is and you have to fulfill all the instructions. But everyone who watches this match knows
that Georgian national team did its best for the victory. It is newsworthy that Alexandr Petrovic did good rotation in the team, young players also participated in this match. After
the first time, Zak Right was the best among opponents, due to fouls chairman decided to rest him and replaced him with young good player. Viktor Sanikidze played very well in
defense, but Mirza Teletovic is a strong player and gained 10 points in the last moments and played the biggest role in this victory. Nowadays Mirza is the best player in Europe
and a good player can win the match. But our destiny is still in our hands.

Two matches are ahead us in Latvia and Georgia, against Holland. Today in the evening we are leaving for Latvia for having rehabilitation. As for the three-point kick by Pullen,
he could kick two-point, but he chose three-point kick. There were four shooters and Zaza Pachulia on the field, Zaza had to block the opponents and others had to kick. It was
our tactic, we are having played with such tactic for five years. It goes without saying that we chose different tactic against each opponent team and make different surprises to
everyone. Today we had to play zone basketball, which we did well in the first time but in the second time we could not. Due to Mirza we changed our tactic many times, because
we could not stop him and thats why we lost. Of course our main goal was to save our main basketball played for the end of the match and we did it. As for the fact that four
Georgians were blocking one Bosnian player and other opponents were free, it means that players followed chairmans instructions badly and rotation was bad. None chairman
would give such instructions to his players- stated Kokoskov.
