Zaza Pachulia, Georgia
"Congratulations to the whole country for this great success. We are full of emotions and so happy. We made it for the third time! This game was important and also, quite hard. Tornike (Shengelia) missed the game because of his injury, but we had no way, we had to win and we did it. We started in a good way, in the second period we reduced the pace a little bit, but improved again in the second half and finished well. It's important how you finish the game and we did it well. The main thing is, we won and made it the EuroBasket. I will always say I am proud to be part of this team. These two months were not easy, but fortunately, everything finished as all of us wanted. Thanks to my team, thanks to our fans, get ready for the next year!" - www.fiba .com
