The game felt like yesterday's game except that this time we rebounded well and we didn't turn the ball over in the end. I'm happy how we have behaved as a team. Expectations here were high. We have one more game left to play and we want to finish strong. We have to do it for ourselves and for our fans."

Lithuania Center Jonas Valanciunas:
"The game was really hard because we didn't have much time to recover. We slept really badly after yesterday's game. The good thing is that we found power to fight until the end. I hope we can finish the tournament well. Today we wanted to prove to our fans and to our country that we can play and have a chance to go to the Olympics."

"It was a very difficult game for us. We played 40 minutes well but unfortunately we came up short in the end. We can be satisfied with our performance."
