Look in the medium term: you have to collect points for later. “I want to put into practice what we have been preparing, training hard. They are two rivals that as locals become very strong, with their people, who give them an extra injection. We have to be prepared for that. In fact, they also had the support of their audience in Buenos Aires. We must anticipate these types of situations, ”warned the 31-year-old point guard, captain for the first timeafter the retirement of Luis Scola.

We have a responsibility and a pressure, and it is up to us whether it is positive or negative. We have to trust in the work we are doing and we will try to do everything we have been planning”, said the Denver Nuggets player from Cordoba.
