BBL – 2016 Molten BBL Play-Off Final: Reaction

Reaction from the players and coaches following the Molten BBL Play-Off Final at The O2 Arena, in London, on Sunday.

Atiba Lyons, Sheffield Sharks head coach:

“I’m truly proud of this team – it’s been a great season.

“We went down by seven or eight, but kept our heads high and were able to go on a run.
“Credit to Leicester, but I’m happy we were able to come out with the win.”
Jerrold Brooks, Sheffield Sharks guard:
“I’m just happy we won – probably the best game I’ve played in a long time.
“We stayed together after they went ahead and came up with some big shots and rebounds in the final quarter.”
Rob Paternostro, Leicester Riders head coach:
“It was a great game – I think we missed too many shots around the basket today.
“They hit some really timely shots, some contested, while we dried up a little bit in the fourth quarter.”
