Player from BC Metalac, Dusan Kutlesic:
“It’s very tough game. We were not able to withstand the physical, we had no power. Mega has played fast and we were not able to respond to the defense. Suddenly we fell. Congratulations to Mega deserved victory.”
Coach Vladimir Djokic:
“I congratulate Mega Leks. We are exhausted. Mega’s players have played faster and motivated. We were not able to answer, but we had the desire. We wanted to provide more but we did not succeed. The bad defense, bad shots. Mega led with 15 points difference in some moments, deservedly won. We will try to recover the team. We will fight and fight until the end. “
Mega’s player, Zagorac Rade said:
“This was a great match. We went back to our level. What we still haven’t managed to fix this offensive rebound. We will try the next two games, we play at home, play as much as possible and that in the second half of the season as ready as we go. “
“This was a great game. Metalac is a great team, and I am sure that they are perhaps the biggest surprise this season. My team came to the rescue after two defeats. We played aggressively and we gave 100 points to Metalac, which plays great defense, and that says a lot. Game was essential to the play off. We have unrealistic goals, but it is always better to have something unrealistic as to be achieved.”
