Partizan NIS Belgrade
"I think that Sasa's team is the best team in the group, with great players, professional staff, and a big budget. What should I say about my players? We fought and collapsed tonight without three players: Stevanovic, whom I need very much in my rotation, Novica Velickovic, who is injured two games in a row and Marko Cakarevic. We really fought. For a while we played much better defense and that's when we were in the lead. We were close. Congratulations to my players on a better game. However, we still need to tighten our team both in defense and offense. We work every day without a day off. It's important that these guys do not enter a series of defeats."
