"Today we didn’t perform as we wanted, especially defensively. We allowed Efes to play the game as they wanted to play, especially in the first period. After that I believe in the second period we improved our game, we played much better; we allowed only 14 points. During the game we had a lot of chances to get the lead, two times I think we had a 7-8-point lead, but we were not concentrated in some crucial moments; they scored some cheap points and came back to the game, at the end it was derby in the last three minutes. We missed some shots, we missed some free throws and what I believe was most important was that in general, we didn’t have the chance to run, to play the game we want, to have a lot of fast breaks and transition points that give us some extra power and rhythm to our set offense, too. Efes broke the home-court advantage we had, but we saw during the season a lot of times that we can play on any home court and now this is the moment to keep fighting for the continuation of the series. And we must be mentally strong to go and fight for these two games [in Istanbul]. Milutinov, as you saw, fell during the game and hit his knee. He has a hematoma and that’s why he was out. I want to thank the fans who came here. Unfortunately we didn’t give them a win."
