"This is an important win against a good team. Partizan is very good and a fighting team as I thought. Before the game I said to my players that Partizan is a good team with big character. I have full respect for their system and coach as well. This is the team that never surrenders and never asks for an excuse. They are not in a good situation in the group, but they showed in past years when they needed that they can beat everyone. We had maybe our best offensive performance in first half. But unfortunately we gave up so many offensive rebounds. In the second half we corrected our mistakes on the defensive side, but we missed a lot of easy and open shots. Finally I think we deserved to win, but we have to prepare better for the next games."

"First of all thanks to Banvit for the hospitality. We came here as a friend and without fear. And we saw that everybody here has the same idea as us. Everybody is sad and sorry for our loss as we are. We mostly played good. I'm satisfied with the game, but of course not happy about the result. We had some financial problems when we started the season, so we made a different team. But if you watch both games, against Banvit you can easily see the improvement. Congrats to Banvit."
