Aris with new coach D.Blatt first game at home with motivation to win by 15 pts. Sounds like a joke but I can't see Aris 6.5 points dog at home against Olympiacos with motivation "we can lose up to 14 points".
Regarding the 2nd leg of the Hellenic Cup semifinals, against Olympiacos (Wednesday 20/01, 19:00), which Aris will have to win by 15 to qualify to the final, he commented: “It would be a very tough game for us anyway. Olympiacos is a high quality team, built to aim for the top in all competitions. The fact that we will have to win by 15 makes it even more difficult for us. What I’d like to see from Aris in this game is to fight for every point, to fight in every play and not to think so much about the score. If we win the little battles, then we might have a chance to win the war, too. That won’t be easy at all, I’m not a fool... But on the other hand, when you make a little step forward at a time, then you get the opportunity to achieve something special”.
