Ultimately, the Rome side won the game through a Miroslav Klose strike but Stramaccioni felt the complexion of the game would have changed dramatically if his side had gone ahead first.
Inter had hit the upright twice before Klose's 82nd minute goal and were looking the more dangerous side until going behind late in the game.
"Lazio were the better team in the first half, as we were never able to threaten, even though we didn't concede any real scoring opportunities either," Stramaccioni told Sky Sport Italia.
"After the break we put in a great performance. Inter deserved to take the lead, but incidents went against us and Klose is a champion. That's football, we didn't deserve to lose.
"We were missing something in the first half and a lot of that was down to the way Lazio played, but we showed that we were a great team.
"We were unlucky with incidents and a few decisions that went against us. We are not stronger than the incidents, that is all I'll say."
Moreover, the match was an ill-tempered affair as the players repeatedly clashed over perceived fouls and incorrect decisions by the referee.
"Incidents were unlucky. Even in the counter-attack when it was three against one, the referee called a foul from Diego Milito on Giuseppe Biava [instead of playing the advantage].
"As I said, we are not yet stronger than the unlucky incidents. I am not just talking about refereeing errors, but also hitting the upright and wasting chances.
"I'm not saying Inter deserved to win as such, but we didn't deserve to lose either."
