Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade
"Congrats to Efes on a well-deserved win. Thanks to the fans who supported us for the entire 40 minutes. It was a game in which at the start we had a little control, until midway of the second quarter, when they built a margin with fast breaks and by making shots. They increased it at the start of the third quarter. We used a lot of energy to catch up. We got within 50-56 and had possession, so we had a chance to catch up, but they responded to that, and had control all the way to the end. We tried our best in difficult circumstances, and it was only matter of time until Efes grabbed it. Efes played excellent, but for us now it is most important to regroup, get rested and healthier. We have to see how to do that, I was worried before this game, and it would not be a surprise for me if there are few more losses coming. But it is also not something that should burden us because we have done outstanding so far."
