The playmaker of the Bulgarian national team Dee Bost shared his assessment of the match against Spain and his expectations for the upcoming match against Turkey tomorrow at EuroBasket 2022. As is known, the “lions” lost to the world champions with 87:114 in their first game of the championship after 11 -year break.
Bulgaria could not resist the offensive power of Spain
“We came to fight, but Spain is one of the best teams in the tournament. They played a great game and now we have to make the necessary changes to improve. Spain is an excellent shooting team and not many other teams can play at the level they do.
We allowed them a lot of open shots and they didn’t give us chances on rebounds and second-chance points. I don’t think our overall problem was just on defense. I was creating a lot of opportunities for my teammates, but I wasn’t that aggressive. I wasn’t trying to create shots,” Bost self-critically told Eurohoops.
As for the meeting with Turkey, which starts tomorrow at 17:15 Bulgarian time, Bost shared: These are the best players of Turkey. They have a lot of talented NBA players. It will be different, for sure, but we are going to fight”.
