"Today's game showed that Hemofarm is a very strong team, and Hemofarm played in the Eurocup semifinal last season. We started very bad, and most of Hemofarm attacks were successful. We played very bad defense in the first quarter, tried to play in some kind of classical basketball that isn't typical for us. But later we added some emotion in the game, put three small guards on the court and it let us play sharper and more clever, changed the offense layout, played inside and with pick-and-roll. Yes, we were luckier ain the end, but only the strongest is luckier. I want to thank our fans for the support, they helped us win tonight!"

"Congratulations to Triumph. We seriously prepared for this game, but we had only two days for preparation because we had the game in the Adriatic league. Tonight we started very good, with good shots, but in the second quarter Triumph showed good defense. In the second part we had some confusion in offense - I even don't know the reason why. Maybe it was because we missed a lot of easy shots, and after that Triumph had very good shots from the far distance. In the last two minutes of the game Triumph was luckier."
