Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade
"Tonight we had a great chance to compare ourselves with a good team, which is ranked among the top four teams in the league. Unfortunately we didn’t have enough energy to play like we know. We could definitely see that our recent travels, four games in seven days, left their mark. Several times we played good defense, but lost concentration in the last 4 or 5 seconds on defense, which they turned into baskets right away. But I cannot blame my players. We fought as much as we could at this particular moment. This team brought itself into this abnormal situation, where people expect it is normal that we keep winning in the EuroLeague in streaks. We had a great series of victories and we will try to make another one. We believe in the things we do, I feel it shows that we keep improving and growing. I believe we made Panathinaikos look bad on offense in the second half, as much as they made us look bad in the second half, too."
