Pamesa Valencia
"Now we know the importance of having the second game at home, because it was a key in this series to play in Valencia today. The team was very motivated and played with intensity. We scored 35 points with fastbreaks, and we kept the control of the game in last two quarters. Congratulations to everybody – the club, players and fans – for this Final Eight. We'll have a difficult game versus DKV but we have time and think in the next game."
PETROVIC, ALEKSANDAR
Zadar
"We have a short roster and because of this they won, although with the score 47-45, we had options and failed in five consecutive offenses. Pamesa is a better team. I'm happy with my players for their work on the court."
