Gravelines-Dunkirk lost by 41 points (111-70) in their first away game, at Roanne on Tuesday. After the meeting, John David Jackson shook his troops in the locker room.
However, everything had started well, on Friday during the first day at home, with a comfortable victory against Boulogne-Levallois (83-71). But four days later, BCM Gravelines-Dunkirk took the lead in Roanne for their first Betclic ELITE trip of the season. After a loss by 41 points (111-70), there are reasons to give up. But JD Jackson is beginning to have experience in this area, after -53 (69-122) and -52 (48-100) suffered in Monaco and Limoges in 2021. In the locker room after the game, the French-Canadian coach immediately wanted remobilize his troops. The northern club shares this post-match:
“I’ll tell you one thing. We better have the same fucking energy they had today at our next home game. After that we’re going to be on the move (for two games). The next two weeks are going to be very, very, very tough.” Ok, they made very difficult shots, they surprised us, but in the second half, (we came out) behind, etc. Of course they had a very good pre-season, they were all there… There was only one way to exist in this game and we abandoned it “No concentration… They were totally focused, we weren’t at all. In this league nothing is easy, believe me! It’s a battle every game and the team that wins the physical battle, dominates the rebounds, forces the fall of the ball, he ends up winning the games because he has the rhythm and the confidence. I told you before the game, these are not words in the wind, it’s the only way to exist in this league! It’s not like other championships. If any is new to this league, this game is your a alert. It was the same last year, we lost 50 points in Limoges. These are things that cannot happen at home. »
As you may have understood, a reaction is expected for the next game, on Saturday against Dijon, a team with two wins in two games.
“We have two days of training. We were interested in being the team we saw last Friday instead of tonight’s team. We will have time to have a structured game, to learn to play together, but tonight is unacceptable. In the next game, victory is mandatory. »
Therefore, players are warned.
