Martin's The Man - Feb 21, 2013

Anthony
Martin
After a desperately disappointing result at home against Cheshire Phoenix last Friday night when the visitors literally stole the win with the last play of the game to take a shock 94 - 92 victory, the Newcastle Eagles went in to Sundays game at Plymouth needing a win to get back on track.

That they achieved it was largely down to Charles Smith (198-F-75, college: Rider) and Kareem Maddox (202-F/C-89, college: Princeton) who had superb double-doubles, a double figure contribution from Darrius Defoe (204-F-84) and Joe Chapman (193-G-84, agency: I.D.S. Law, college: Marquette) and a stand-out performance from point guard Anthony Martin (186-PG-80).

Martin who was returning to one of his old stomping grounds at The Plymouth Pavillions had his finest game in an Eagles vest with 18 big points and an excellent 7 rebounds as he took advantage of lengthy court time to give his side a welcome boost and inspire them to a 96 - 79 victory.

After the game Martin spoke with EuroBasket about the importance of the win, his own personal performance and what it's like to play against one of his old clubs.

"I just think we came out motivated after losing our last game. We didn't want to lose two in a row and lose ground at the top of the league and in the title race. We knew we needed this game and the fact that were playing two games a week now instead of one means we're getting our rhythm back."

"So we just needed this game to get Friday out of our minds and I think we wanted it more than anything as we didn't want to travel all the way back home with another loss on our record."

"Defence was definitely the key. That's our main thing, defence. Defence before anything else. We defend and then we defend again. That's what we start with. Offence can come and go but defence has to be there all of the night."

A sound philosophy and one that Head Coach Fabulous Flournoy ensures all his team commit to and restricting The BBL's highest scoring team to 79 points on their own court is an impressive effort. Even more so when you consider the Eagles were without Damon Huffman (186-PG-85) and Flournoy himself limped out of the game at the half with a reoccurrence of his groin strain.

The Eagles needed someone to step up and that man was Martin who proved to be the X-factor in the pack popping up just when and where The Tynesiders needed him.

"Its a simple process. I just wanted to come out and do what I can for my team. I've been talking with Dave Forrester and Fab and they want me to be more aggressive and that's what I've been trying to do the last couple of games and I think I got it right tonight."

"The guys were looking for me so I owe them a lot of credit as they had to be defended so that got me open a lot and I just have to knock down my shots and I did that tonight."

Perhaps as well as he played and the importance of getting the win was paramount but it must also have been sweet for Martin to do it against his old club.

"Newcastle is my home now but Plymouth will always be a part of me 'cos I've been here so long and its always good to come back and see a lot of people that I consider family. But while it's always nice to come back down and see them but once I get on that court ain't nothing friendly about Plymouth and Newcastle so you've just got to go out there and win the game which we did."

"Going forward its about getting Damon and Fab back healthy again and then we'll have our whole team back and when we've got our whole team back we're real tough. We then have to find our rhythm as a unit and with everyone playing together we'll be ok."

The loss against Phoenix was a blow to the Eagles Championship hopes but there's still a lot of games left to play before the end of the season and Martin's assessment going forward is certainly one that makes sense and is worth looking out for.
