Baku, June 23 AZERTAC
Slovenia has beaten Israel 16-7 in men's 3x3 basketball at the European Games Park on Tuesday, while Russian team won Belgium 21-12.
Boris Jersin commented on their victory; “Its really hot. I'm sweating, and I need a couple of minutes to recover."
"In the beginning of the game, we didn't know what to expect from the game. We didn't know them, we went into the game like every other game. Our key is tough defence so we manage to win it easily"
"We know that we are one of the favourites, but we put that aside, we don't think about that."
On the Slovenia team's strengths and weaknesses:
"Our strength is definitely tough defence, we can stop shooters from outside. Our weakness is we are a bit of a slow team, but we have a lot of experience and that is our advantage. We're together for a long time."
