»I congratulate to my players because they did everything that was needed to win the game. And this is not a demagogy. We had a good first half also at the game in Ljubljana, where we received 38 points but now we succeeded to play such defense all the game,« said Cibona's coach Danijel Lutz.

»We spent more energy in the first two minutes and a half of the second half than in the whole first half. We reduced the margin to five, six points but than Ilievski missed the lay-up and I really don't know the real reason for this while in our second attempt we sent the ball to Nurkić, who shouldn't be under the basket if Bilan would've play better that action. We lacked the energy and the concentration,« said Cedevita's coach Aco Petović.
